Israel gets new friend
A new support group for Israel has been set up in Liverpool. Retired accountant Johnny Cohen told the 25 delegates at the Merseyside Representative Council AGM that the first meeting of the Liverpool Israel Support Team had taken place. He would meet activist Joy Wolfe to seek advice on how “to argue the case for Israel”.
Council president Gordon Globe reported that the year’s events demonstrated the vibrancy of Merseyside Jewry, despite a declining population. Delegate Malcolm Turner expressed dismay that the Liverpool Jewish Bookshop was in need of modernisation.
