The great statesman, Sir Winston Churchill, was not just an accomplished politician, he was also a thoughtful scholar. His writings and interactions with Jews and Judaism reveal a fascinating perspective that will both shock and surprise you.

Churchill’s views on Jewish ethics, British Jewry, biblical stories, Zionism and the State of Israel, paint a picture of a man who on the one hand was in awe of the Jewish contribution to the world, but on the other was deeply troubled by its dangerous potential for derailment.
