Wishing you all a very Happy Chanukah

League of Jewish Women invite you to
The International Council of Jewish Women
Human Rights Days Zoom Seminar on

We are very happy to announce that Jonny Daniels, who is the Founder of From The Depths, an International Foundation, working in the field of Holocaust memory and memorial, the only such group run entirely by millennials

The Foundation has a special focus on helping and supporting the last living Righteous Among The Nations, the brave non-Jews who risked their lives to save their Jewish neighbours during the Holocaust. Jonny will be speaking about ״How remembering the Holocaust is a Human Rights imperative”.

As it is Chanukah, Jonny will light and bless the candles.

If you would like to attend this special event, please contact yvonne@theljw.org who will send you the Zoom information.

It is with sadness that we learned of the death of Audrey Arnold’s daughter, Jeanette. Audrey is a Lifetime Member of the League and was very active. Over many years she attended ICJW conferences. On behalf of the Executive and Members of the League of Jewish Women we wish her ‘Long Life’.

If you wish to send a message to Audrey, please contact yvonne@theljw.org who will forward it. Due to the Data Protection Act, we are unable to give contact details.
