On Wednesday 3rd July the Jewish Leadership Council hosted a breakfast briefing with IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz. In light of the recent and ongoing turmoil in the region, Lt. Gen. Gantz was able to provide senior UK communal figures with an update on the current issues facing Israel and the IDF. Lt. Gen. Gantz kindly ended the session by taking questions from the audience. The meeting provided invaluable insight and ensured that the UK Jewish community continues to stay informed and able to assist wherever possible. The JLC are extremely grateful to Lt. Gen Benny Gantz for meeting with us.
