Henry Smith Memorial Lecture


Join the Jewish Labour Movement for the inaugural Henry Smith Memorial Lecture on the 2nd April 2017.

Henry served most recently as Vice Chairman of the Jewish Labour Movement, and held several positions in Poale Zion, notably for several years as Chair. He was widely respected and admired both by Labour politicians in the UK over several decades and within the Israeli Labor Movement, especially amongst Labour's sister party, the Israel Labor Party. Having started his communal career in Young Poale Zion, he was very active within the Zionist Federation, ensuring a multiplicity of Zionist voices are represented. JLM are proud to honour his memory. 

We are delighted that the lecture will be given by Guardian Columnist, Labour movement activist and friend of the Smith family, Owen Jones; in conversation with JLM Vice-Chair Sarah Sackman. 

Owen Jones is a Guardian columnist and New Statesman contributor, formerly of the Independent. His notable works include Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class and The Establishment: And How They Get Away With It. Owen is a regular guest to our TV screens as a political commentator, and recently spearheaded anti-Trump protests across the country.

Owen will be covering a number of issues including left antisemitism, the Middle East and the Labour Party. 

Tickets are £5 for JLM members, or £2.50 for youth and students. For non-JLM members, tickets are £7.50. We look forward to being joined by the Smith family, JLM members, and friends and allies from across the Labour Party.

Venue will be announced to those who have RSVPed the week before the event. The organisers and the venue reserve the right to refuse entry, and a ticket is not a guarantee of entry on the night.
