Glasgow Jewish Representative Council, in collaboration with Glasgow City Council, is hosting a lecture in memory of the late Judith and Henry Tankel on the evening of Sunday 10th March 2013.
Judith and Henry were tireless workers on behalf of both the Jewish and wider communities. Judith was the first woman to be President of the Representative Council and active in social housing and interfaith; whilst Henry, an eminent surgeon, was also a Past President, and he was the first Jew to address the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.
They were both very well known and liked by the many individuals and organisations that came into contact with them. We would like to invite all who knew or worked with them to attend this lecture to celebrate their contribution to all the communities of Glasgow and beyond.
Please come early to share your memories of Judith and Henry with friends and family. All welcome, but please confirm attendance by email: email@example.com or phone: 0141 577 8200
Please circulate to all who may be interested.

Interfaith Engagement in Glasgow
Interfaith Engagement in Glasgow – Executive Summary
St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, 19th January – 28th July 2013
Under Gods is a photographic exhibition which explores the complexities of everyday religious life around Soho Road in Birmingham. The area is home to people from more than 90 countries. Between 2007 and 2009 photographer Liz Hingley lived with and intimately documented different religious communities, including Thai, Sri Lankan and Vietnamese Buddhists, Rastafarians, the Jesus Army evangelical Christians, Sikhs, Catholic nuns and Hare Krishnas.
Including objects as well as photographs, this thought provoking exhibition examines issues surrounding inter-faith living and aims to encourage dialogue between diverse religions and cultures. The fascinating photos will inspire debate and interpretation – make sure you join the conversation.

We want everyone in Glasgow to take part in the Games, and one great way to do so is to volunteer. Everyone has skills to offer that can be used to deliver this amazing event for the city, and skills developed in 2014 will lead to great things beyond for the city and those involved.
Set out below are details of local support and information events, designed to ensure that local people have all the information they need to allow them to consider becoming a volunteer.
