Shwekey Marks Yom Yerushalayim with Mizrachi UKAugust 18, 2016
Almost 1000 people attended Mizrachi UK’s Yom Yerushalayim concert with world-renowned singer Yaakov Shwekey (on Sunday 5th June). At the largest Yom Yerushalayim event ever to have taken place in the UK, hundreds of attendees packed JFS School to capacity, to celebrate the reunification of Jerusalem.
The event, organised in partnership with JFS, the Jewish Agency and Jewish News, was Mizrachi UK’s third annual event to celebrate Yom Yerushalayim and has displayed significant growth in numbers over the years.
Joshua Pomerance, Executive Director of Mizrachi UK, said “The atmosphere at tonight’s event was incredible and a true reflection of the appetite that exists in our community to celebrate and rejoice in the success of the State of Israel.”
Rabbi Andrew Shaw, Chief Executive of Mizrachi UK, said “We are thrilled that tonight’s event attracted a record number of people and I look forward to continuing to grow Mizrachi UK and religious Zionism here in our community.”
