NEXT GENERATION JEWISH RADICALS
This month we get political: Geoffrey Alderman explores the factors that have influenced voting, from 19th-century Zionists and Suez to Ken Livingstone and Ed Miliband. Judi Herman speaks to Labour MP Luciana Berger about her love of community and Liverpool. And we find out if and how Jewish issues influenced the party our readers voted for. Plus, we look at Leon Golub’s paintings of men at war, the musical legacy of Britain’s internment camps, Arthur Miller’s centenary and much more.
