Weekly Update 11th April 2008

Dear Friends,

I was lucky enough to spend a fascinating weekend last weekend at the
Liberal Judaism Biennial Conference. Though the theme was Creation &
Creativity there was much Israel content for participants to get their
teeth and brains into with at least one Israel related choice every
session. My Friday night spent away from the main conference with the
young adults was made extra special by the presence of a group of
musical students from the Leo Baeck High School in Haifa (and their
guitar maestro teacher). They were a pleasure to meet and wowed the
conference on the Saturday night with their concert of Israeli music at
the Israel themed dinner. Another highlight was Professor Rafi Walden of
Israeli organisation Physicians for Human Rights. Rafi is a speaker
every Zionist organisation in this country should bring over here - his
message of cooperation, peace and coexistence was heart warming and
motivating despite the organisation dealing with great hardships faced
by Israeli minority groups and Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.

Before the articles a reminder to get your tickets for the Israel 60
celebration at Wembley Arena featuring Jackie Mason and Sarit Hadad.
Pro-Zion are proud to be sponsoring the event. For further information
