Launched in Jerusalem, Radical Responsibility is about Jewish Ethics and Philosophy, The Pursuit of Justice, Religion and Contemporary Society and Leadership.

Hear Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks speaking at the launch - and appealing to both extremes in Jewish society, those who only concentrate on Torah study and those who consider only the outside world, - not to segregate themselves into those spheres alone, but to combine both elements, as it is the duty of our people to be a light unto the nations. A talk with depth and humour.

Also: As the bird migration season is about to start, Walter’s World paid a visit to Agmon Hahula, the Hula Valley Bird sanctuary. This is a highly recommended excursion to this paradise for birds and people. Very enjoyable, even if like mine, your hobby is not birds.

And: The travel scene, if Israel is your destination for Passover.

Walter Bingham was born in Germany. Just days before the outbreak of WWII, with the help of a Zionist youth movement he was selected for a place on the ‘Kindertransport’ to Great Britain. Walter saw front line action during the Normandy invasion of Europe and was awarded the Military Medal for ‘Bravery in the Field’. In England Walter also acted in films including several Harry Potter films. On the day of his Aliyah in August 2004 he transferred his programme ‘Walter’s World’ to Israel National Radio as a weekly Magazine programme and it has been running here regularly ever since. Walter is an accomplished public speaker and was a member of a visiting panel of lecturers at schools throughout the UK, where he spoke on events in the Third Reich. He has also spoken at schools in the USA and addressed audiences in Israel.
