Noah on Trial

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

A world-ending courtroom drama

Was Noah partly to blame for the demise of life on Earth? Armed with a prophetic pre-warning of the coming deluge, could he not have done more? Was the ark-builder a biblical hero or a betrayer of humankind?

We have gathered legal experts to debate this case. Both sides will present rabbinic and contemporary arguments, and the judge will adjudicate. Join us for a live in-person courtroom drama that will deepen your appreciation of this cataclysmic Torah episode.

Presiding Judge: Rabbi Dr Harvey Belovski

Prosecution and Defence lawyers:

Anthony Metzer QC – Barrister, Goldsmith Chambers, London

Rachel Marcus – Barrister, 1 Crown Office Row, London

Dr Harris Bor – Barrister, Twenty Essex, London

Joanne Greenaway – Arbitration Lawyer, CEO of LSJS

This event is taking place in-person and online. In-person places are limited so please do book early to avoid disappointment.
