In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, British and Israeli senior officials convened in Jerusalem this week to discuss the past, present, and future of British-Israeli relations.The Balfour Declaration was a British government public statement, issued Nov. 2, 1917, that offered support for the establishment of a “national home” in Palestine for the Jewish people. The declaration is credited with galvanizing popular support for Zionism.During the conference, dubbed “From Balfour to Brexit” and held Sept. 13 and 14 to inaugurate the new Jerusalem-based Sir Naim Dangoor Centre for UK-Israel Relations, Lord Roderick Balfour, the 5th Earl of Balfour – and great-great nephew of former Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur Balfour – reminisced fondly about the “family folklore” of his ancestor’s “very important letter.”
