Clive Lawton OBE talks on Judaism

The Theology Department was delighted to welcome international Jewish scholar, speaker and author Clive Lawton OBE to speak to all of our Lower 5 and Upper 5 students ahead of their GCSE examination papers on Judaism.  

Clive gave an entertaining and engaging account of the Jewish faith as a living reality. This enabled our students to ask questions about a major world religion to one of that religion’s acknowledged experts. Those students who had never met or held a conversation with a Jew were given a unique opportunity to learn something of great value, not just for their examinations, but also for their wider understanding as globally educated citizens of the future. 

Clive was greatly impressed with our students interest and courtesy, and wished them all good luck in their exams – or as he put it with typically Jewish exuberance: “Mazel tov!”
