This week we’re talking to Rabbi Mark Goldsmith about how life in his Jewish community has changed since the coronavirus epidemic began. We also discuss the meaning of the Jewish festival of Passover, and how celebrating will be different this year during social distancing regulations. And finally, what lessons people can learn from the hopeful message of Passover.
Rabbi Mark Goldsmith is Senior Rabbi at Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue. He gained Semichah (rabbinic ordination) from Leo Baeck College in London where he is now lecturer in Jewish Life Cycle and Homiletics. He was Chair of the Assembly of Reform Rabbis UK from 2011-2013 and Chair of the Rabbinic Conference of Liberal Judaism from 2004-2006.
