Please join us for a short erev-Shabbat service with singing, candle-lighting and challah. This service is aimed at preschool and early primary school aged children with their families.
Rabbi Jonathan introduces the few relevant texts and shows it is by no means as clear cut a matter as you may have thought. Kiddush Hashem (‘sanctification of God’s name’ – dying to preserve God’s values) is not only lauded but mandated in certain situations, and the death penalty is liberally mandated.
Discussion will run until 12pm, with coffee break.
