Herut/Likud Book Launch


A book commemorating four decades of Likud-Herut party activity by the United Kingdom's Jewish community will be launched at a reception in Jerusalem on Wednesday, October 3. "Days of Action: Likud-Herut 1970-2010" was written by 77-year-old British immigrant and veteran Herut-Likud U.K. organizer and activist Joe Gellert. It is a 625-page compendium of correspondence, photographs and press clippings reconstructing the community's efforts on behalf of Soviet Jewry, and it also follows the events surrounding the visits of former Prime Minister Menachem Begin, according to a statement by the book's publisher, Tel-Hai Fund of Great Britain.

The two-hour midday reception, to be held at the Begin Heritage Center, will feature a number of Israeli dignitaries and guests from the United Kingdom, including Natan Sharansky, chairman of the Jewish Agency; Andrew Balcombe, former chairman of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain; MK and Minister Benny Begin; Danny Danon, MK and deputy Knesset speaker; Herzl Makov, director of the Menachem Begin Center; and Yisrael Medad, also of the Menachem Begin Center.

The event is by invitation only. People interested in attending may contact Mr. Gellert at (Mordechai I. Twersky )
