The Reason I'm in Cambridge


In the past two weeks, I have been: 
Monday, 24 January: with Michael Berkowitz discussing the topic "Picturing 'Jews in the News' 1933-1948: Questions of Criminality, Respect and Honour."

Wednesday, 26 January: with James Renton discussing the topic "Zionism and the British Empire."

Wednesday, 26 January: with Victor Greenbert discussing his experiences as a Holocaust and Auschwitz survivor and with High Court Judge Sir Charles Gray discussing his experiences presiding over the trial of David Irving's libel lawsuit against Professor Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin Books over claims that he was a Holocaust denier.

Monday, 31 January: with Edward Kessler discussing Judaism in the New Testament.

Tuesday, 1 February:  with Edward Kessler and Michael Thompson discussing Paul and the Jews (using Romans 9-11 as a case study).

Tuesday, 1 February:  in the Abrahamic Faiths scriptural reasoning event discussing texts on wisdom and folly.

Wednesday, 2 February:  with Daniel Langton discussing the topic "Evolution and Jewish-Christian Relations."

Wednesday, 2 February:  with Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks discussing the question "Is There a Role for Faith in Modern Britain" (the West). 

Thursday, 3 February:  with Yael Ziegler discussing the topic "Mirror Characters in the Bible: the Case of Samson and David."

So cool.  



Oh, and on my way back from Dr. Ziegler's lecture today, I stopped at the blue crepe stand and bought myself a lemon and sugar crepe.  Walking back through the life-filled, cafe-lined streets of Cambridge eating such a divine thing made it even that much more worth it.
