Emanuel Synagogue presents an online event with Hugh Mackay, who in conversation with Rabbi Ninio, will be discussing The Kindness Revolution and how we can restore hope, rebuild trust and inspire optimism.

Hugh challenges us to ask what kind of society we want to become. Do crises and catastrophes bring us closer together? Have the events of 2020 and 2021 changed us?

Through the hardships of the past 2 years, we’ve seen inspiring displays of kindness and consideration, our personal sacrifices for the common good and our heightened appreciation of the value of local neighbourhoods and communities. Hugh asks us to consider: 'Could we become renowned as a loving country, rather than simply a "lucky" one?'
