For more than 30 years Professor Marc Ellis has been an important and highly influential Jewish voice writing on the Holocaust, Israel/Palestine and the long term consequences for Jewish ethical life of these seismic events in Jewish history.
You can trace the emergence of Jewish Voice for Peace, IfNotNow and Na'amod: British Jews Against Occupation, back to his writing.
Ellis has just published a short masterpiece 'Finding Our Voice: Embodying the Prophetic and other Misadventures' which reflects on the "explosion" of internal Jewish dissent on Israel and the challenge of Jewish solidarity for the Palestinian people.
I review the new book and interview Marc Ellis about his ideas. We also touch on Labour/Corbyn and antisemitism and the role of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
