The Zionist Federation is delighted to announce that General Lord Richard Dannatt will be addressing this year’s Annual Balfour Lecture on counter-terrorism, and addressing the relationship between Israel and Britain’s armed forces. General Lord Dannatt will be addressing us in conversation with Davis Lewin, Associate Director of the Friends of Israel Initiative and Director of the High-Level Military Group.

General Lord Dannatt joined the British Army in 1971, and has deployed on operational tours to Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Cyprus, and Kosovo. He was awarded the Military Cross for exemplary gallantry during active operations in Belfast in 1972, and served as the Chief of the General Staff from 2006-2009.

“We always aim to provide engaging speakers at our yearly Balfour Lectures, but this year’s offering is particularly exciting”, said Paul Charney, Chairman of the Zionist Federation. “General Lord Dannatt is offering us a rare outsider’s perspective into the workings of the IDF, as well as an appraisal of what Her Majesty’s Forces can and have been able to learn from it”.

This event will be held in a North West London venue. To purchase tickets, please visit
