Leeds visit for world Wizo president 'tinged with sadness'

August 1, 2008

World Wizo president Helena Glaser told 100 Yorkshire members that for the second time her visit to Leeds was tinged with sadness.

Mrs Glaser recalled her last visit to the city, in 1994, when there was a bombing at the Jewish community centre in Buenos Aries. She said the mood was again sombre as the remains of two Israeli soldiers, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, were returned to Israel.

In praising Leeds Wizo she said: "You are a fantastic group." The lunch was held at the United Hebrew Congregation.
