Liberal Judaism’s Rabbi Harry Jacobi MBE conducted this weekend’s 82nd AJEX Annual Remembrance Ceremony and Parade, alongside Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and Rabbi (Major) Reuben Livingstone.
Harry – who twice fled the Nazis, first from Germany to Holland and then to the UK – served as a member of the Jewish Brigade Group of the British Army and, later, as part of the Interpreters Pool of the British Army of the Rhine. He is a vice president of Liberal Judaism.
The moving Remembrance Ceremony and Parade took place at the Cenotaph in London. Ex-servicemen and women and those who served in the auxiliary services marched in the parade, together with their families and members of the Jewish Lads’ & Girls’ Brigade.
This year’s event also commemorated the centenary of The Naval Battle of Jutland and The Battles of Verdun and The Somme.
