An amazing night with music from Shir and Chip Kendall; keynote speakers Malcolm Hedding (ICEJ International Spokesperson) and Simon Johnson (CEO of the Jewish Leadership Council) and other guests. Look out for details of next year's event celebrating Israel's 70th Birthday!
Several UK Board members were invited to attend the 68th Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrations in Manchester. We were honoured to spend time with our Jewish friends and meet Eitan Na'eh - Israeli Embassy Charge d'Affaires.
A Night to Celebrate Israel, March 2016
Our 3rd Night to Celebrate Israel, in partnership with the Manchester Israel Information Centre, was again an amazing evening. Our keynote speakers were David Parsons (ICEJ) and Eitan Na'eh (Israeli Embassy Charge d'Affaires). We were also delighted that the event was supported by the Mayors of Manchester and Bury, and the Police Chief Superintendent, Divisional Commander of Bury. We enjoyed wonderful musical performaces from internationally renowned violinist Sergei Popov and soprano Izabella Goldstein; and not forgetting the exuberant J.T.C Choir.
Our thanks to Jim Keelan for all these wonderful pictures, giving a flavour of the evening. © Jim Keelan
