Karine Elharrar is a young woman, a wife, a mother, a lawyer, a social activist and, since 2013, a sitting member of Israel's parliament, the Knesset, on the Yesh Atid party list.

Ms Elharrar, fluent in several languages including English and holding a graduate degree from American University's Washington College of Law in Washington DC, was the head for several years of the Clinical Education program of Bar Ilan University's respected Faculty of Law.

Today, she is regarded as one of this country's outstanding legislators on issues relating to children’s rights, equality of opportunity and the social integration of people with disabilities.

We are proud to say Ms Elharrar will be the guest of the Malki Foundation UK during the week of September 12, 2016, taking the central role in a serious of public and private events in Greater London that encompass synagogues and schools, professional firms and associations, and (yes) the British parliament.

Did we mention that this remarkable person was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at the age of 9? And that her life, her message and her presence in London are bound to be a source of rare and substantial inspiration?

For details of the still-open events, please contact James Harari at Malki Foundation UK: phone 020-3637-4245. Or email him at
