The Jewish Chronicle - - News - BY MAR­CUS DYSCH

IRENE BRUEGEL, founder and long­time sec­re­tary of the Jews for Jus­tice for Pales­tini­ans group, died last Mon­day.

She had also served as chair of the Bri­tish Shalom Salaam Trust.

JfJfP’s ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee said Ms Bruegel’s “com­mit­ment and cre­ativ­ity” were cen­tral to the group’s es­tab­lish­ment and that a char­i­ta­ble fund would be set up in her mem­ory.

Ms Bruegel had been di­ag­nosed with a de­gen­er­a­tive auto-im­mune liver dis­ease for which the only treat­ment was a trans­plant, but she died af­ter a pre­lim­i­nary op­er­a­tion.
