Balfour centenary event to take place in Northwood

23 October 2017

Join Arzenu UK (formerly Pro-Zion) and the Alliance of Progressive Judaism’s Israel Desk at Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue at 7pm on Monday October 30 for a celebration of the centenary of the Balfour Declaration.

The event will see two distinguished and celebrated speakers in conversation with each other: Matthew Gould and Lord (Danny) Finkelstein.

As British ambassador to Israel, Matthew set up the UK Israel Tech Hub, which laid the foundations for the UK and Israel’s powerful tech relationship. He is now the director general for digital and media policy in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

Lord Finkelstein is a member of the House of Lords, a political columnist for The Times and The Jewish Chronicle and a regular on television programmes including Newsnight.

Matthew and Daniel will discuss what it means to be both British and Jewish, 100 years after the 1917 Balfour Declaration laid the foundation for the establishment of the State of Israel.

Tickets cost £15, or £5 for members of Arzenu UK, those under 25 and benefit recipients. The cost of tickets includes a drinks reception. To purchase, please email or call 01923 822 592. Transportation from the Finchely area can be arranged when booking.

This event is made possible thanks to the generous support of the World Zionist Organisation and Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund.
