David Solomon has given two presentations to Ealing Synagogue and in each case has thrilled the audience with his unique style of imparting information. In the first presentation he managed the almost-impossible by covering the whole of the history of the Jewish People in one hour, using his boundless energy, enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject. He has a most innovative approach using blank paper on the walls of four sides of the room to itemise key points in four periods from the patriarchs and the prophets, to the period of the first and second temples , to exile and the diaspora, and recent history. At the end he responded well to subsequent questions which extended well beyond the allotted time. It’s surprising how much we all, including the Rabbi, learned.
The second presentation was equally inspiring and covered a one hour’s journey through the Haggadah. In his presentation David exploded many myths and explained the true essence and meaning of Pesach and the seder service. He then covered the origins, contents and history surrounding the Haggadah and how it developed into this special book. There were again many questions by an enraptured audience who had learned a great deal. Many thanks David, we look forward to a return visit soon.

Having been taught by David Solomon, I must say that he is one of the most outstanding educators I have ever had. His Jewish History in One Hour seminar is amazing and I recommend all to attend.

I went to the first in the history series last night in Modi’in and it was fantastic. David has such a brilliant way of getting information across. I went home with my head spinning with new knowledge. I wish that more people would take the opportunity to come and benefit from having such a scholar (and entertainer) in town.

I have sat through hundreds and hundreds of lectures and presentations, and as you are aware, in terms of my interest in communication skills, I am demanding…This man has such knowledge and to add to this, such skill in concentrating the essential aspects of Jewish history, that it was a privilege to be part of this experience.
