Citizenship – Privilege, right or something in between?

Here is a message from Simon Rothstein at Liberal Judaism, about a panel event next week:

Dear Rabbis and Communities

I am writing as we have an important Liberal Judaism event coming up next week with a very strong panel and are keen to have as many members of our communities there as possible.

It takes place on Thursday 4 April at the Montagu Centre and is the latest in our Hot Potatoes series of events titled Citizenship – Privilege, right or something in between?

The panel includes Tasnime Akunjee (a criminal defence lawyer who represents Shamima Begum), Edie Friedman (the executive director and founder of JCORE), Satbir Singh (CEO of the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants) and our own senior rabbi, Rabbi Danny Rich. The panel will be chaired by Charlotte Fischer of Citizens UK.

These events are specially designed so that perceptions are challenged, all ideas are heard with respect and questions from the audience are encouraged.

This latest one takes place from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Thursday 4 April. Tickets are just £5 and are available from

For those outside of London who can't physically attend we will be filming the event and putting it online.
