Report by Valerie Tesler

Over 30 young professionals attended BBYP (B’nai B’rith Young Professionals)’s Meet, Wine and Dine event on Thursday February 14th at the White House restaurant in Hendon.

Attendees enjoyed champagne, a three-course meat meal and wine and a talk from former BBC World Service and Radio Free Europe reporter, Carl Cohn who spoke about growing up in communist Romania and ‘The Future of World Jewry & the Diaspora’ followed by questions.

The Young Professionals heard about BBYP’s regular events and about BBUK (B’nai B’rith UK)’s various projects. They also had the chance to donate towards BBUK’s programme for underprivileged children in Kiriat Gat.

An enjoyable evening was had by all as participants sipped red wine and enjoyed the Valentine’s-themed décor of red heart-shaped helium balloons and ‘romantic’ background music.
