Why are words so important to so many Jews? Historian Fania Oz-Salzberger comes to London's Jewish Book Week to discuss Jews and Words, which she wrote together with her father, the celebrated Israeli novelist Amos Oz. They roam the gamut of Jewish history to explain the integral relationship of Jews and words. Fania will then appear at another Jewish Book Week event, presenting a lecture entitled 'How Jewish is Contemporary Hebrew?'.
