Defender of the Middle Way: Marking the first nahala (yahrzeit) of Rabbi Dr Abraham Levy OBE
Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)
S&P Sephardi Senior Rabbi Joseph Dweck and Rabbi Dr Raphael Zarum Strict or lenient? Broad or insular? What’s the best way to be a Jew today? Rabbi Levy had his own passionate answer which he lived and breathed for fifty years as the spiritual head of Britain’s Spanish & Portuguese community.
On this special evening, two leading rabbis who follow his path will share some of the profound ideas and Sephardic legacy underpinning Rabbi Levy’s vision, and how his message of tolerance and encouragement is more vital now than ever.
“At a time when the Jewish world seemed increasingly polarised between a more insular piety and rising secularism, Rabbi Abraham Levy held fast to his belief in the middle way.” (Obituary, The Jewish Chronicle).
