Divided We Stand

Colin Lang presents A Journey with Judge Israel Finestein QC.

Sunday 3rd September – 7.30 pm

 

Spiro Ark together with Central Synagogue are delighted to host the book launch of this remarkable book which is a tribute to the late Judge Israel Finestein QC (1921-2009) by his nephew Colin Lang. He will be supported by a panel of three well-known speakers.

Israel Finestein was an outstanding communal leader, a former President of the Board of Deputies and a renowned Anglo-Jewish historian publishing numerous books and articles. From these publications, the author looks at the impact of division within the community, from the Emancipation to the present day, and challenges the reader to consider that despite the fragmentation of Anglo-Jewry, the community has more in common than would appear.

After graduating from Oxford University, Colin Lang qualified and practiced as a solicitor. Amongst his many other vocational achievements he became a Deputy District Judge in the County Court for 15 years, as well as becoming the representative of Birmingham Hebrew Congregation at the Board of Deputies and a member of the Jewish Historical Society of England.
