London 2012 & new booklet on Zionism

BBC Radio 4’s Sunday programme had a couple of stories which may be of interest to London people – you can listen to it on iPlayer.

South London’s Rabbi Danny Rich, Chief Executive of Liberal Judaism, introduced a new booklet, Zionism: a Jewish Communal Response from the UK, from the Board of Deputies of British Jews on British Jews’ affinity with Israel (about 15 mins in).

In a piece on the Olympic and Paralympic Games (about 19 mins in), Duncan Green of LOCOG (who joined us for LBFN’s December meeting) and Alex Goldberg (Co-Chair of Faiths Forum for London) talked about their involvement, and the opportunities for religious communities, in London 2012 and in the legacy of the Games.
