Our inaugural Key Speaker & Reception Event in Dublin on Wednesday 24th July was a great success, and we were absolutely delighted so many of you could attend.
Apart from the very interesting and engaging talks from our three speakers, followed by a Q&A, it was a wonderful networking opportunity for leaders and representatives from the Jewish and Christian communities, as well as individuals from the Irish media, the legal profession and politics.
His Excellency, Ambassador Ophir Kariv gave the opening address, followed by Steven Jaffe, Co-Chair of Northern Ireland Friends of Israel, who spoke on the subject of “Israel and Palestine in the Shankill and Falls: How the Arab-Israeli conflict plays out in Northern Ireland.” Maurice Cohen, Chair of the Jewish Representative Council of Ireland addressed the issue of antisemitism in Ireland.
The feedback was extremely positive and we plan to hold a similar event on an annual basis.
We have included below, a selection of photos from the evening:
