Lord Janner in Ma'alot

A jubilant Lord Janner raises a woven artwork made for him by the children of the Ma’alot Tarshiha kindergarten in the Galileee.

The nursery, attended by Jewish and Arab children, has been named in Lord Janner’s honour by the state of Israel, to mark his service to the Jewish community and the state.

At the dedication ceremony, attended by the British ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould, the mayor of Ma’alot, Shlomo Buhbut, and the deputy mayor of Tarshiha, George Ablini, a plaque was unveiled renaming the school the Lord Greville Janner Education Centre.

Mayor Buhbut said: “ You cannot tell at this kindergarten if a child is Jewish or Arab. That is what is so wonderful about our town. Lord Janner, you are not afraid of challenges and building bridges. There is no better place in Israel than to have our kindergarten named for you.”
