    description: The Holocaust Friendship Association (HSFA) invites you to hear Bill Carmichael, the well known journalist, talking about "The Life and Work of a Columnist". Bill is a journalist and university teacher who has been working in Yorkshire for the last 25 years. Born in Liverpool to a working class family he went on to study history at Cambridge University before working as a reporter and news editor at newspapers and agencies across the UK, including a stint as news editor of the Yorkshire Post in Leeds. He currently teaches journalism at the University of Sheffield and also works as a freelance journalist, including with the Yorkshire Post where he has written a weekly column for the last 16 years." He will also spend time talking about the demonisation of Israel and the way it is singled out for criticism when there are many other countries with much worse human rights records - and the dangers as he sees it as increasing anti-Semitism in universities and elsewhere.

    description: Jews, Christians and Muslims are to stand together to affirm their support for one another and to reject violence in any form in the name of religion at the first event of its kind in Leeds. At a time when Jews are being attacked in Israel and in Europe, when antisemitism is growing, and when Christians and Muslims are being attacked by members of Islamic State, members of the three religious communities in Leeds have jointly decided that it is time to say no to violence in the name of religion and yes to supporting one another as people of faith. The event aims to provide a friendly, informal setting to people from the different faiths. It will be attended by religious and lay leaders from the three faith groups and members of the Leeds Jewish community are being encouraged to attend, regardless of whether or not they've had any prior interfaith involvement.
