[Statement] Response to Halle attack

10 October 2019

Hearing the news about the attack in Halle as we broke our Yom Kippur fast after spending the day in synagogue was a terrible and heartbreaking way to begin the new year.

This incident reminds us that antisemitism and racism is a very real threat all over the world, and that we must continue to unite as a global Jewish community against hateful, extremist views.

We also recognise that this incident could have been much worse had it not been for the quick-acting security provision at the synagogue. In the UK we are lucky to have the support and guidance of CST and their volunteers. We are thankful for everything they do to keep the Jewish community safe and prepared.
