Board of Deputies President reacts to record CST figures on antisemitic incidents

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to the CST Annual Incidents Report which shows a record high total of reported antisemitism in the UK.

Marie said: For the third year running, the CST has reported a record total of antisemitic incidents in the UK. Events in Gaza and the ongoing antisemitism crisis in the Labour Party undoubtedly played a role in these figures, and they are very worrying for Jews living in the UK.  Overall, the UK remains a happy place for its Jewish community but this reports shows that there is no room for complacency. Defeating the evil of antisemitism will take a concerted effort by the country’s political leadership – in all parties – and civil society. We must strive to make our country a just, safe and respectful society. There can be no room for racism and hatred.”
