Should We Apply Jewish Law? 10.30am Sunday
The recent Nation-State Law reaffirmed that Jewish Law could be applied in the absence of a legal solution to an existing problem (Lacuna). Is this a good idea? Who will decide on the Jewish Law and would this be restricted to Jewish Judges or will non-Jewish Judges be able to make a decision?
Adv. Aharon Korzen will discuss this interesting and topical subject and will relate some of the amusing examples with which he has been involved.
What is the
Science of Happiness and Wellbeing?
Sunday 14 October
More than 20 years ago, research psychologists including Martin Seligman and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi turned their attention away from mental disease to begin delving into what makes people happy. Good relationships, life purpose, and activity are among the commonsensical conclusions to what makes life worth living. This talk will introduce you to these and other aspects of the movement of positive psychology in which psychological study shows how we can all enhance our happiness.

Who was Sir Mark
10.30am Sunday 21 October
Self-appointed Middle East “experts” knowingly toss out oblique references to the Sykes-Picot Agreement while being largely uninformed of its contents or the circumstances in which it was conceived and revealed. If challenged, they know even less about Sir Mark Sykes (1879-1919) the Englishman, who he was or from where he emerged and how and why he ever became involved in the first place.
Yet his role was critical not just in redefining and redesigning the geography of the Middle East but in unexpectedly adopting, indeed embracing the Zionist cause.
Our speaker Raymond Cannon will attempt to offer a meaningful profile of Sykes, his background and key political role on behalf of the British government which in 1917, seemingly out of the blue, announced that the establishment of a Jewish home in Palestine was to be one of its key war aims.
