ISRAEL’S birthday was celebrated by more than 400 guests at Bnei Akiva, Salford.
The event was opened by the Israel embassy’s Yehuda Avivi and organised by Yom Ha’atzmaut Manchester Committee chairman Karen Solomon and her team, as well as Bnei Akiva shaliach Benaya Cohen.
The UJIA Magic Moments delegation, from Israel, set up a mock Bedouin tent, while each room was dedicated to an Israeli city, including Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Eilat and Haifa.
There was also an art exhibition, with contributions from local Jewish school pupils.
The raffle prize — an El Al flight to Israel — was won by Hans Kaye.
