Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has applauded the announcement of the first ever official royal visit to Israel, to be undertaken by the Duke of Cambridge, this summer.
Jonathan said: “We are delighted that in the year of Israel’s 70th anniversary, the Duke of Cambridge will be making the first official royal visit to the country. This is something I have been calling for, for a long time. The visit is testimony to the fact that the UK and Israel are key allies with a strong trading relationship and close cultural links. This visit will bring our two nations even closer together.”
