Kol Chai Friends of Israel is for everyone who wants to have a better understanding of Israel and related topics.
When do you meet?
We meet about four times a year – usually on a Thursday evening from 8-10pm.
What do you do?

Our speakers are always generous with their time. Not only do they make time for questions from the audience but they also stay to chat to people over refreshments afterwards.

Our plans include social events, a talk from the past president of WIZO UK, a speaker from the Israeli Embassy and we are also hoping to arrange a visit from Colonel Richard Kemp, CBE. Please see the Kol Chai Diary for more info.
