Board of Deputies applauds Church in Wales over adoption of antisemitism definition

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has applauded the Church in Wales for their adoption of the international definition of antisemitism.

She said: “We are pleased to see that the international antisemitism definition is gathering pace in the faith communities. Following the Church of England’s adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism last September, we have been pleased to see the Church of Scotland and now the Church in Wales follow suit. We would commend the definition and all its examples to all who want identify, confront and eradicate this poisonous and enduring form of hatred from our society and we thank the Church in Wales for their solidarity.”
