    title: JLI's The Art of Parenting

    01 Mar 2015 | 19:30
    contact: Rabbi Eli Pink
    venue: Chabad-Lubavitch Leeds
    description: This winter the JLI is presenting one of its most powerful courses to date - The Art of Parenting. As parents we are constantly being bombarded with various educational approaches and methods. This course answers these great questions by looking at over 3000 years of Jewish wisdom. We are never too old - or too young - to learn new skills, and as a parent of six, preparing this course has been an eye-opener for me. Due to the importance of the course, we are offering sessions twice a week - Sunday evenings and Tuesday evenings, subject to demand. We are also prepared to arrange smaller groups in private homes. The course fee is £60 and includes textbooks and refreshments. We would also like to encourage couples to come together so we are offering a great discount for couples - when one spouse books the course, the other spouse comes for free. We will also be offering crèche and babysitting facilities, subject to demand. If you would just like to sample the programme, pre-register for a free first lesson. We are so confident you will enjoy the course, we offer a money-back guarantee!

    description: The Jewish Historical Society of England Leeds branch, in conjunction with The UHC Synagogue Leeds and Jewish Book Week, invite you to hear Barbara Winton who will talk about the life of her father Sir Nicholas Winton often known as the English Schindler in her book ‘If It’s Not Impossible’. Nicholas Winton was a young diplomat in pre-war Prague where he saved the lives of over 650 mainly Jewish Children from the Nazi Terror. He organised visas and supervised the Prague Kindertransport. After a distinguished war service he settled down to family life and a career as a company accountant. His bravery was unknown for over 40 years until he featured in The BBC series This is Your Life. Soon awards and recognition poured in from all over the world. Come and hear this wonderful story about a man who can be rightly called a ‘Mench’.

    title: Kids Court in Conflict

    03 Mar 2015 | 20:00
    contact: Hannah Weisfeld
    venue: MAZCC
    description: Each year 500-700 Palestinian juveniles aged 12-17 are prosecuted by the IDF in the Military Courts in the West Bank. The courts were established in 1967, following the six-day war and since then have prosecuted approximately 750,000 Palestinians. Approximately only 5% of these minors see a lawyer before or during their initial interrogation. During this time they will often confess to having committed the crime they are being interrogated about (normally stone-throwing), and will sign confessions or be shown legal documents of which 69% of children report to being in Hebrew, a language they do not understand. Kids Court in Conflict (www.kidscourtinconflict.org), a campaign instigated by young people involved with Yachad is aiming to change some of these statistics by ensuring there is a lawyer who can be on call to reach Palestinian minors at the beginning of their interrogation process. The lawyer's role will be to ensure that the children are aware of their rights. The students behind the campaign aim to raise £26,000 to fund the lawyer. We will be joined by Israeli lawyer Nery Ramati, a leading Israeli human rights lawyer and partner in Gaby Lasky and Partners Law Office specialising in freedom of expression and protest. He has been representing Palestinian, Israeli and international human rights and anti-occupation activists, as well as Palestinian minors who are arrested by the Israeli Army and brought to trial, in the military and civil courts since 2008. Nery will be in conversation with Simon Bickler QC, a member of the Leeds Jewish community who recently returned from a Yachad lawyer's trip in which he spent time in the military courts in the West Bank. A number of students involved in the campaign Kids Court in Conflict will also be joining us for the evening to talk about the campaign.

A middle-class Israeli family has a reunion for Passover and find themselves feasting on a smorgasbord of dysfunction as they try to cope with their innumerable problems in this drama. Yona and Michael are hosting the Passover festivities. It is a sadder than usual gathering because one of their sons was recently killed in a military accident. Nathaniel, twin brother of the deceased, creates a stir when he shows up with his new girl friend. His ex-wife Gila bears this well and she and the girl friend become better acquainted. Dorona is the eldest and is constantly plagued by allergies, something that has helped kill the romance in her marriage to Rikki. Shai is anorexic while Dalia is morbidly obese. Meanwhile the bratty son of Nathaniel and Gila creates all sorts of malicious mischief
