Wanted: words and voices


WORLD Jewish Relief and Jewish Book Week are looking for a letter or similar text that “best encapsulat­es the authentic Jewish voice” for the Jewish Voices event on the last day of Jewish Book Week 2019.

Jewish Voices will bring together a range of performers — Henry Goodman, Nicholas Hytner, Emily Maitlis, Zoe Wanamaker and many more — to read “emotive letters, speeches, communicat­ions” etc in celebratio­n of the enduring power of Jewish words. The two organisati­ons now need and are asking people to submit their favourite example(s). It can be a letter — private or perhaps to the Times — joke, song lyric or passage from literature.

The winning piece will be read out by one of the notable performers on the night.

To send in your favourite example of a Jewish voice, email Rafi Cooper, by March 5, at World Jewish Relief: rafi@worldjewis­
