6 November 2006 ( - This year’s Zionist Federation Israel Expo will focus on Exhibitors from the North of Israel, in order to pay tribute to the strength of the communities that managed to thrive during the recent war, despite being uprooted and displaced.

Exhibitors from the North will include Orly Chen Sasson who will showcase her unique enamel and brass jewellery. Orly lives in Hadera and during the war, opened her home to 10 strangers who were forced to flee their own, enabling them to continue life in as much safety and comfort as possible. Neta Lidor, from Nahariya, ensured she kept up her trade of bag making even as the Katyusha rockets fell on. Neta found peace through her art and used it to channel her fierce emotions.

For one Expo exhibitor, plans to travel north during the summer were promptly changed. Instead, Maya Cohen welcomed Northern Israelis into her home. Maya will be running a stand to display her handmade glass frames.

Director of Zionist Federation Alan Aziz, commented ‘The Zionist Federation feels that it is very important to support the communities of Northern Israel in a pro-active and positive manner. The whole of Israel have shown immense strength and resilience, ensuring their lives continue with as much normality as possible. We want to support Israeli trade to help ensure it continues to prosper.”

Israel Expo, the UK’s largest Jewish community event, a major exhibition showcasing products and services from Israel, will be held on Sunday 26th November, at Brent Town Hall, Wembley. The Expo offers a perfect opportunity for the UK Jewish community to openly and actively express support for the Israeli community at an essential time. Organised and co-ordinated by the Zionist Federation, this year’s Expo promises to be the biggest, most diverse and dynamic yet, with over 100 participating exhibitors from Israel and the UK.

It will be an enjoyable experience for the whole family, offering a food court, children’s area, live entertainment by one of Israel’s top supernatural entertainers as well as professional singers and dance troupe. A whole section will be devoted to property companies and the travel industry, and there will be a market Shuk area and an Aliyah and Opportunities in Israel unit.
