Event description
Lady Esther Gilbert presents an A to Z of wanderings through Jewish history with Sir Martin Gilbert.

About this event

Join Lady Esther Gilbert as she zooms through 18 countries, presenting historical characters, among them a German in Denmark, a Dutchman in Lithuania, and a Levi who was upgraded to a Cohen, plus Jewish scholars, traitors, martyrs and heroes.

In their years together Sir Martin and Esther travelled widely and made a point of visiting Jewish sites and synagogues on their travels. Her talk will focus on some of those sites that are particularly laden with historical significance, an A to Z of wanderings through Jewish history:  from Anchorage to Zaverichchya, the known, the not-so-known and the really out of the way.
