A charity providing 14,000 hot meals daily at soup kitchens and schools throughout Israel enjoyed a successful dinner of its own at the Millennium Mayfair on Monday.
Hazon Yeshaya raised £500,000 from the event, attended by 430 supporters.
Making the appeal, Cyril Dennis highlighted a recent Israeli government report which found that 28 per cent of Israel’s population lived below the poverty line. This figure included over 600,000 children.
Charity founder Abraham Israel was among the guests.
