A Look Inside
Unpaid Annotation
Essays in honour of David Kessler celebrating all aspects of his life edited by his friend of many years, Alan Crown. The selection and range of topics is wide, reflecting David's many interests over the years: some reflect Anglo-Jewish history of which David has been a part, while others discuss the Jewish press and publishing in which he has been a key figure. A number of essays speak of David's other ventures beyond the Jewish community - as well as being active in local government and the preservation of our environment, he has been influential in both the growing and welcome relationship between Anglo-Jewry and the various churches of other faiths in Britain.
