In honour of Margaret Thatcher's support of
both during her time in Parliament as MP for Finchley and Golders Green and as
Prime Minister from 1979-1990, the ZF in conjunction with Kinloss Synagogue are
holding a tribute night. The venue is Kinloss Synagogue which is poignant as
Lady Thatcher spoke there a number of times. Israel
The speaker is former editor of the Spectator and the Telegraph, Charles Moore. Charles was a close confidant of Margaret Thatcher and was asked by her to become her authorised biographer upon her death. He recently released the first volume of his biography 'Not for Turning'. During the reception and talk Charles will reveal the woman behind the myth and highlight her connection and support for the Jewish people.
Director of the ZF, Alan Aziz said, "I am honoured to help the Jewish community honour Margaret Thatcher. I personally heard her speak at Kinloss Synagogue when I was younger and we should remember Lady Thatcher's support for
Israel shown by
the first ever official British state visit to
in 1986. Moreover, throughout her life Margaret Thatcher was a vigorous opponent
of antisemitism”. Israel
