What has Football Ever Done for the Jews?

Date: Thursday 6 February 2014

Time: 8pm

Price: 12 standard; 6 concession
Location: JW3, 341-351 Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET

How have British Jews shaped and been shaped by football? Who are the Jewish players who have made it to the top, and why are there more Jews in the board room than on the pitch?

And finally, from the Y-word to the Quenelle, why is anti-Semitism so rife on the pitch and why doesn't it curb our love of the game?

Debating these issues will be journalist and author David Aaranovitch; Anna Kessel, sports writer for The Guardian and The Observer; Talksport radio personality Andy Jacobs; Jo Rosenthal, curator of the Four Four Jew exhibition and JW3 CEO and die-hard Spurs fan Raymond Simonson.
