for forthcoming uk programmes of jewish or israeli interest

Tftd: Mirvis 17/4/2019

this morning (wednesday 17th), 7.46-7.49am, on bbc radio 4

thought for the day, by chief rabbi ephraim mirvis

Passover: ‘We’ll teach them that the iconic structures for which ancient Egypt is so well known came at great human cost, and that is why ultimately the culture symbolised by the pyramids and the sphinx has long since been consigned to history. We’ll teach them that achievement cannot be measured by the splendour of our edifices alone, impressive as they are, but by the number of generations that continue to embody our values’.”
