I have been reflecting on the event with David Baddiel last night (if you missed it you can see the recording by clicking here). There are so many minorities in our land, and many feel passionate about their heritage. Some people promote and talk about their backgrounds and others do not, for a multitude of reasons.
I am proud of my Jewish heritage and this was strengthened by being an active member of the Stoke on Trent Jewish community when I was just a bit older than our youngest new member, Lili Balkin. I was heartened to see Lili at the talk last night and hope that we can encourage our members in their 20s and 30s, who are the lifeblood of our community future, to make their voices heard for our community locally and nationally.
On that subject we have London Mayoral elections in 3 weeks. Please click to register to attend our joint Mayoral hustings and also submit a question for the candidates (in advance). See you there and as David Baddiel said last night, let’s stand up and be counted.
I wish you all a good shabbos
