Friday, 18 October, 2019 19 Tishrei 5780

6:30 PM - 10:00 PM


Join us on Friday 18th October for a Shabbat Unplugged service followed by a Westminster Voices talk by Jeremy Solnick on his poems about historic events, his inspirations and his research. 

Who is our Voice?
Jeremy Solnick is a member of Westminster Synagogue, with a passion for poetry. Jeremy grew up in South Africa during the Apartheid Era and left in 1973 when he was 22, to avoid National Service in the South African army. In 2007, Jeremy gave up his work in law to concentrate on writing poetry, and has done a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Essex. Part of which was an 80 page epic poem about the trial of Nelson Mandela, made up of dramatic monologues of people involved with Mandela. Jeremy has also written poems about other historic events.      

What will he be talking about? 
Jeremy will speak about the way he works and how he goes about finding research for his narratives. He will also speak more specifically about a poem he wrote a few years ago about the Battle of Arnhem and how he was introduced to the subject by one of our founding members, Lewis Golden. 

Should I book in?
Yes! Let us know you're coming so that we can make sure we have can cater accordingly. Whilst there is no charge to join us we do ask attendees to make a small donation towards the running of these sessions.
