About Us

West of England Friends of Israel is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting understanding and dialog about what is happening with Israel and addressing the issues raised in media and politics today. We are committed to challenging misrepresentations of the country and its people, and disseminating news of its evermore remarkable achievements in science and technology, medicine, and in other aspects of society.

We are based in Bristol, with members active in areas throughout the South West, including Bath, Exeter, and Weston-super-Mare. We are open to members from all backgrounds; Israel is a secular, pluralistic country, and our organization reflects this.

We strive to be as balanced as possible, while raising awareness of the inaccuracy within the sources responsible for a large part of the popular opinion in this country, particularly in our area, and the effects of this at local, national, and international levels.
