May 21, 2009

Joy Wolfe, joint president of the Zionist Federation, was guest speaker at Leeds UJIA women’s division annual appeal lunch. As a replacement for BIcom head Lorna Fitzsimons, who had to withdraw from attending due to illness, Mrs Wolfe told the 110 guests: “The Palestinians want peace as much as we do. It’s their leadership that has let them down.” Richard Manning, chairman of UJIA UK programmes, reported that 75 per cent of the community’s 16-year-olds are visiting Israel this summer. The event was held at the United Hebrew Congregation.
