    Prime Minister Theresa May is to address the UJIA's dinner to mark Israel's 70th anniversary, it has been announced.

    She will address more than 800 of its supporters on Monday evening at an event at a dinner that will "celebrate Israel's achievements and look forward to Israel's aspirations in building a shared society".

    Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and Israel's ambassador to Britain, Mark Regev, will also attend, as will Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner of Reform Judaism, Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg of Masorti, Rabbi Joseph Dweck of the Spanish & Portuguese communities, and Rabbi Danny Rich of Liberal Judaism.

    UJIA chief executive Michael Wegier said: “We are honoured to welcome Prime Minister Theresa May for the Israel 70 Anniversary Dinner, which will celebrate Israel’s achievements and look to the future.

    "We are privileged that in the context of growing public hostility towards Israel and antisemitism here, and a challenging summer both here in the UK and in Israel, Prime Minister Theresa May will demonstrate her unwavering support for the Jewish community.”

    The evening is sponsored by Currency UK and Israel Bonds.
