Review of Jews, Horns and the Devil book event by Sharon Ross

Last Wednesday night I was treated to a duo of interesting lectures about how Jews have been depicted in illustrations, to a packed audience, at Central Synagogue. It was part of Spiro Ark’s lecture series. The first lecture was a review of Anton Felton’s book ‘Jews, Horns and the Devil’,

I’ve grown frustrated over the last few years that my hebrew speaking and writing abilities are very poor.  I finally decided to do something about it in October 2018 when I enrolled for my first term at the Spiro Ark ulpan.  The course, taught by the incredibly talented and multifaceted Nitza, was a revelation.  From going to the first lesson as a very unsure and non-confident person I am now in my third term and I can see that my abilities have grown leaps and bounds.  Nitza makes the lessons fun and informative and has such original ways to make you remember the material.  It’s also become a family activity and a way my kids can see that just as they have to study for their exams their mother has to study too!  (It’s great for learning with my son doing GCSE hebrew).  I can’t recommend Spiro Ark enough.  You are sure to gain by immersing yourself in Nitza’s lessons.  I certainly have.  I have so much gratitude to Nitza for giving my brain a workout and making hebrew really come alive.

Nitza and Robin are truly wonderful people who organised exceptionally and were beyond welcoming. They were hugely passionate and complimentary about the book and the topic; I really can’t speak highly enough of them or of Spiro Ark.

Nutritional interpretations and Symbolism of Passover’s traditional food
Many thanks for such a lovely session at lunchtime. It was a terrific talk, steeped in history and custom. I particularly enjoyed the marriage with food (as well as humor)!   Roy Ballam Managing Director and Head of Education British Nutrition Foundation

Hearing about the history of Cambridge and its university by a local guide, born and bred, is not something you do everyday and I'm glad that I tagged along for the adventure. It was great being among like-minded individuals and learn a little about everyone and then have a private lecture about the Genizah! What a fascinating document! And what a great chance to actually see and touch the originals that are being studied! For those interested in history - Jewish or otherwise - this was a great opportunity and I'm very grateful to Spiro Ark for putting on these tours and their events. First, but not last! Thank you!

Thank you so much for the most wonderful day in Cambridge. The morning tour of Cambridge was informative and interesting and it is certainly somewhere I will return. John the guide was very knowledgeable and personable and pitched the tour just right for our group, The highlight of the tour, the Genizah Fragments exhibition, was absolutely breathtaking. Not only to see the fragments themselves, but to have a lecture which explained every details of their discovery and the work that was involved in the restoration brought every piece of text to life. I am so pleased that I had the opportunity to join this day. I look forward to further explorations with you and your group. Warmest regards
