Rabbi Lawrence in Conversation with...


The Rt Hon Lord John Alderdice - Wednesday 30th October at 8pm.


John Alderdice is a Psychiatrist by profession, but as Leader of the Alliance Party of Northern Ireland, he played a significant role in the Talks on Northern Ireland including the negotiation of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. He was the first Speaker of the new Northern Ireland Assembly and has held many international positions including as President of Liberal International. Since 1996 he has sat as a Liberal Democrat life member of the House of Lords, and is currently Director of the Centre for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict and Chairman of the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building in Belfast. Lord Alderdice’s areas of special interest are the individual and group psychology of terrorism and violent political conflict and the psychology of religious fundamentalism.


Marie van der Zyl - Wednesday 6th November at 8pm


Marie van der Zyl was elected President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews in May 2018. In the past three years she has played a crucial part in the fight against antisemitism in the Labour Party. Her quote, labelling the Chakrabarti report as a "whitewash", was carried widely across national media. Marie was at the forefront of the campaign against the so-called "cab-rank" policy, by which the Inner North London Coroner delayed the release of bodies to Jewish families. Her negotiations resulted in its adoption of the internationally recognised IHRA definition of antisemitism.
