Israeli Embassy hosts CMF at Eid reception

Many people forget that about 20% of Israel's citizens are Muslims, a ratio four times higher than that of the UK.

Accordingly when the Israeli Embassy in London asked if the CMF would like to be guests at the Embassy's first ever Eid reception, we readily agreed. It took place at the Israeli Embassy on Wednesday 13 July, with guests being invited by the Conservative Muslim Forum and by the Embassy directly.

The evening consisted of an informal reception with light kosher food hosted by His Excellency Ambassador Mark Regev

Below is a small selection of pictures.
