Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford
Commemoration service arranged by the Diocese of Oxford in association with the Oxford Jewish Congregation, marking 800 years since anti-Jewish laws were introduced by the medieval church at the 1222 Synod of Oxford. The service offered a symbolic opportunity to apologise for the historic actions of the Church which saw English Jews ostracised and led to a mass expulsion in 1290. The service also marked the positive reframing of Christian-Jewish relations in more recent times. My choral arrangement of a traditional Hineih Mah Tov was sung at the service.
