Jordan’s king to address British Jewry

(JTA) — King Abdullah of Jordan will address the Board of Deputies of British Jews at its annual dinner in November, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

The theme of the event is multi-culturalism, interfaith and world peace, according to the newspaper.

King Abdullah’s father, the late King Hussein, attended the board’s annual dinner more than a decade ago.

The Board of Deputies is the representative organization of British Jewry.

Representatives of Britain’s Jewish community met in June with King Abdullah.
