The World Jewish Congress has honoured Lord Weidenfeld with its prestigious Theodor Herzl Award.
The peer received the accolade at a gala dinner at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum on Tuesday.
The award recognises those who work to carry forward Herzl’s ideals for a safer, more tolerant world for the Jewish people.
Herzl was one of the founding fathers of modern Zionism.
