Street fair for Israel in Oxford


Oxford, England held its first-ever Israeli cultural street fair.

The main attractions in the British university town’s fair included a group of camels, belly dancers, stalls offering Israeli food and a miniature Western Wall on which visitors could place personal notes that were to be sent to the real wall in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Monday’s event was organized by the Oxford Israel Cultural Society, founded several months ago by a group of Israeli, American and British students.

A group of Arab students and British Women in Black held separate vigils near the fair to protest the event.
