Rifts and Rows

A London walking tour outlines the many divisions in British Jewry

Print Email

When Nextbook’s London-based reporter Hugh Levinson heard about a walking tour called Great Jewish Controversies, he thought, “That’s intriguing.” But when he heard it was being led by Britain’s best-known Jewish educator, a larger-than-life guy named Clive Lawton, he decided it was a must.

Hugh joined Lawton and a group of intrepid truth-seekers on a rainy London morning. Lawton mixes passion and humor as he explains why British Jews have split into so many denominations, each fiercely defending its own views.
