BB Young Professionals succesful post Chanukah Dinner with Talk from Standwithus

Report by Valerie Tesler

B’nai B’rith Young Professionals (BBYP) held its second joint Friday night dinner with Hendon United Synagogue on Friday 14th December.

The event was enjoyed by all, with over 35 young professionals. Participants enjoyed a four-course meal and wine, supplied by the White House. The ‘post Chanukah’ dinner menu included salt beef and latkes followed by donuts and pancakes with chocolate sauce.

There was a short talk on B’nai B’rith and BBYP, outlining the charity’s work and the Young Professionals group’s regular events.

The group was addressed by Jonathan Farrell, Director of Student Affairs at StandWithUs, an Israel education charity dedicated to educating people of all ages about Israel in order to combat the anti-Semitism and extremism that often distorts the issues. Jonathan spoke about his upbringing as a Christian and his journey to become a Christian Zionist and his fervent support of Israel and the Jewish people.

The interesting and informative talk was followed by questions.
