Hampstead hears from Sir Anthony Seldon

Sir Anthony Seldon delivered the 21st Isaiah Berlin Lecture at Hampstead Synagogue on Sunday 25 February 2024.
Before a packed crowd of over 200 people, Sir Anthony’s lecture was called “Has the job of Prime Minister become impossible? Can the next PM possibly succeed?”

VIP guests included Prince Pavlos of Greece, Lord Peter Mandelson, Lord Jitesh Gadhia, President of the United Synagogue Michael Goldstein as well as current and former officials from the Royal Household and UK government.

Richard Abramson, Chairman of Hampstead Synagogue, said: “Our community was delighted to host this important lecture, the latest in our series of Isaiah Berlin annual lectures. We had a large audience, including many distinguished individuals. We all left the hall feeling enriched and inspired.”

Lecture Coordinator Zaki Cooper said: “Anthony gave a scintillating lecture and all those who were fortunate to attend were stimulated by what he had to say. Talking about PMs could not have been a more suitable subject, in the year of a general election. This series, which we started in Isaiah Berlin’s memory in 2003, continues to go from strength to strength, with the support of the Shul and the Berlin family.”
