The Board of Deputies today sent a Condolence book to Buckingham Palace, created by the Board of Deputies to allow members of the UK Jewish community to convey their sympathies at the passing of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
In the few days that the book was open, more than 270 organisations and individuals left messages in the book, which demonstrates the respect and affection in which Prince Philip was held in by the Jewish community.
Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl said: “As an expression of our fealty we have created this book of condolence, including messages of love and loyalty from many of the Jewish community’s most significant organisations and individuals.
She added: “We hope that the messages will provide some small measure of comfort to Her Majesty the Queen, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and many other members of the Royal Family mourning the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh.”
