Welcome to the Cavalcade
We are delighted to tell you about ‘Welcome to the Cavalcade: a Festschrift in honour of Rabbi Professor Jonathan Magonet on the occasion of his 70th birthday’.
Academic colleagues, friends and former students of Jonathan were invited to contribute to this volume, and the enthusiasm and generosity of those who responded was overwhelming.
Over 40 essays – by Jews, Christians and Muslims – reflect Jonathan’s love of Bible and special approach to biblical exegesis, his innovations in liturgy, his creativity in poetry and song, his commitment to interfaith explorations, and the ways in which he has fostered individual and original voices who have added to the richness and complexity of religious life today. The Festschrift combines academic essays with more personal reflections from scholars and friends from around the world and contains a full bibliography of Jonathan’s published work as well as an overview of Jonathan’s achievements.
