Bromley Reform Synagogue, 28 Highland Road, Bromley BR1 4AD

Bromley Reform Synagogue is delighted to welcome author and journalist Jeremy Havardi – to speak about his book ‘Refuting the Anti-Israel Narrative’ – a detailed and comprehensive critique of the charges made against Israel today.

Jeremy Havardi refutes commonly held views that, among other accusations, Israel acts aggressively and with disregard for civilian lives in pursuit of an illegal and unnecessary occupation of Palestinian territory, and speaks of the anti-Semitism this engenders. He outlines the legal, moral and historical justice behind Jewish statehood, and discusses the reasons behind the failed peace process in recent years.

Whatever your own views, we hope you will join us in the Synagogue to hear his talk and join in the question and answer session afterwards.

Wednesday, 8th November, 2017
7.30p.m refreshments, 8p.m. talk.
