In addition, the members of Etzion branch were honoured collectively as the branch has been in existence for 40 years and as a branch of working women who meet in the evening despite family obligations — they are to be heartily commended. The keynote address by Marc Falconer, headmaster of Herzlia High, was warmly received as he spoke on how the future of Zionism rests with our children. Ivor Joffe, teacher Jan Thorne and the Herzlia Choir delighted the audience with their exquisite voices, and a delicious tea rounded off the festivities.
