Dear Members,

Firstly, we would like to wish everyone Purim Sameach.

We have more interesting articles for you this week. First we have an
article about a caucus set up by the Knesset to discuss some of the
issues surrounding aliyah from the West. Next we have an article
calling for a merger between the Conservative and Reform Movements in
Israel. Finally we have an article addressed to those in the west that
give legitimacy to terrorism. These three articles all raise some very
interesting contemporary issues about Israeli society. If you have any
comments on anything then please write to us.

Sunday March 30th, is our AGM. Our keynote speaker at the AGM is
Shelley Kedar, from the Leo Baeck Education Centre, Haifa. Shelley will
be talking on the topic of "how do we bring Israel to our communities".
Following the keynote address will be a discussion with a panel
including: Meirav Kallush (Shlicha of the Movement for Reform Judaism);
Noa Marom (Shlicha of Liberal Judaism); and Daniel Needlestone (co-Chair
of Pro Zion). The discussion will be chaired by Rabbi Neil Janes of
Finchley Progressive Synagogue. There will be plenty of time to field
questions. We hope to see a lot of you there, at what promises to be an
interesting event.

Shabbat Shalom,

Charlie, Daniel and all at Pro Zion
