Thursday 6th July saw the latest in The US' highly successful business breakfasts. Hosted by The Marquess of Reading at the historic Calvary & Guards club in Piccadilly, attendees heard from David Horovitz, the founding editor of The Times of Israel and former editor of the Jerusalem Post.

David shared his perspective on a number of issues relating to Israel including the peace process and the lack of a stable long-term partner and in particular, the threat of Hamas taking control of the West Bank that would effectively make Israel a no fly zone for fear of rocket attacks. He also explained Netanyahu’s current philosophy that the key to Israel thriving is to demonstrate strength with a strong economy, strong intelligence gathering and strong tech industry. This strength has allowed for improved diplomatic relations with David citing the visit of former General Dr. Anwar Eshki and his delegation from Saudi Arabia as an example.

The breakfast ended with a Q&A session  where questions included who would be Netanyahu’s next political rival and what Theresa May could learn about coalition governments.

The breakfast raised funds for the important work of US Chesed, including supporting US Community Care groups that help thousands of members each week, Pesach food parcels and Chesed bursary funds for Tribe trips to ensure that no one is excluded due to financial constraints.
