    Tony Blair is to open an annual human rights event in Haifa this Chanucah.

    The former UK prime minister will virtually launch the Leo Baeck Education Centre’s celebration of International Human Rights Day by lighting a candle on the first night of the festival.

    Mr Blair will be opening the event on behalf of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

    A special prayer has also been composed by rabbis from the Centre as a symbol of “commitment, as human beings, as Jews and so importantly for us at this time, as Israelis, to the values of Human Rights”.

    The prayer will also be said by Jewish students at the College and Muslim students from a nearby school.

    Chanucah begins on December 1.
