Dr Dena Coleman z"l

Partnerships for Jewish Schools and the Jewish Leadership Council were devastated to hear the tragic news about Dr Dena Coleman z"l. Dena was an inspirational Headteacher and a role model for teachers and pupils alike. She was a hugely respected colleague whose passion for Jewish education was matched by wisdom, warmth and a willingness always to offer helpful advice and support. Yavneh College will always stand as her most impressive legacy but she will be remembered with deep gratitude also by countless pupils from all the schools she led, by Headteachers whom she mentored and by all those who benefited from her professional advice and personal friendship. We extend our deepest condolences to all her family on this tragic loss. May her memory always be an inspiration and a blessing.

Professor Hawking - a bad decision taken by a wise man

The news that Professor Stephen Hawking had withdrawn as a keynote speaker at the June 2013 Israeli Presidential Conference in support of the Boycott movement has appeared to legitimise this contentious means of trying to achieve peace in what is an extremely complex region. Professor Hawking’s motives might have been genuine but, unfortunately, the method he has chosen will certainly not help achieve his stated aim.
