Thousands of people are expected to attend this year's Israel Expo on Sunday which offers a taste of Israel from buying property in the Holy Land to sampling culinary delights from over 100 exhibitors.
The event at Brent Town Hall in north west London is organised by the Zionist Federation and will feature a new product that is going on sale - Peace Oil.
An initiative which brings together Jews, Arabs, Druze and Bedouin, the olives used in the oil is grown in the Carmel Mountains and is then pressed to produce an extra virgin olive oil. The project shows how different groups in Israel can work together.
"The ZF are delighted that Peace Oil will be joining us at this years Expo, an example of the extensive range of exhibitors," said Zionist Federation director Alan Aziz. "It is an exemplary model of an organisation that is pro-actively supporting the path to peace in a practical way, particularly poignant at a time when it is even more important to support Israels vibrant trade. The yearly Expo gives us all a chance to make a difference to the actual future of Israel."
