Liberal Judaism takes part in Downing Street protest

31 January 2017

Liberal Judaism was proud to be present at the Downing Street protest against President Donald Trumps new travel laws yesterday evening, alongside our youth movement LJY-Netzer and many others.

Our senior rabbi and chief executive, Rabbi Danny Rich, spoke at the event saying: “No to stereotypes; yes to treating people as individuals. No to closing legal routes; yes to opening our hearts and homes. No to refusing to help shattered lives; yes to offering shelter. For you know the heart of a stranger.”

The BBC reported that several thousand people were present at the protest.
