We are delighted to announce the return of our flagship event – The Annual Balfour Dinner.
The Dinner commemorates the Balfour Declaration of November 2nd 1917 when Britain’s Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, wrote to Lord Rothschild committing the British Government to creating a homeland for the Jewish People in Palestine – the catalyst for the reborn State of Israel. Its significance is reflected in the continued special relationship between Israel and Britain.
This year’s dinner, marking the milestone 75th anniversary of the State of Israel, promises to be a celebratory occasion not to be missed.
We are honoured to have as our guest speaker from Israel – the leader of the Opposition and former Prime Minister – MK Yair Lapid. Our guest speaker from the United Kingdom will be the Rt. Hon. Ed Balls co-chair of the UK’s Holocaust Memorial Foundation and a former Secretary of State in the UK Government.
