24janAll DayERETZ Presents: Jerusalem Ablaze, In Conversation with Orlando Ortega-Medina


Event Details

Book Launch, sponsored by the ERETZ Programme. Click here for tickets.

Join us for what promises to be an exciting event celebrating Orlando Ortega-Medina’s debut collection Jerusalem Ablaze: Stories of Love & Other Obsessions, in conversation with Rabbi David Mitchell, exclusively, two days prior to its UK release.

Orlando will be reading, and enacting with West London Synagogue’s own Maya Levy, brief extracts from Jerusalem Ablaze. He will also take the audience on a vivid journey back in time to 1970s Israel, the setting for several of the stories, through references to film, music, and imagery. On this nostalgic journey, Orlando will introduce us to some of the more colourful characters who populate the pages of this can’t-put-it-down volume.

Exclusively for this event, we have acquired 40 pre-release, limited-edition hardback copies of the book, which will be available for sale on the night for £12.99. [50% of the sale price will be donated to the ERETZ Programme.]

There is no charge for this event, but a minimum donation of £5 toward costs is encouraged.

Jerusalem Ablaze is now available for pre-order from Amazon, Waterstones, and Foyles. Visit Cloud Lodge Books for more details.
