One of Israel's foremost military men, Major-General Yoav Galant, gave expert insight on the Middle East situation at a West End dinner for Beit Halochem UK, a charity supporting Israeli war veterans and victims of terror.

Lord Finkelstein hosted a panel discussion with the major-general and Israel ambassador Daniel Taub. An emotional appeal by charity chair Dennis Levine to the 420 guests helped to swell the proceeds to £730,000.
