Ahead of Rosh Hashanah, the Board of Deputies of British Jews has announced its support for the Jewish Council for Racial Equality (JCORE) letter to the government on social justice issues. The letter makes six key asks:
Marie van der Zyl, President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said:
“The Board of Deputies welcomes these calls to protect refugees, commemorate the horrors of slavery, and eradicate racism from politics. The High Holyday period is not only a time of reflection but also a time for considering how the Jewish community can work with others to help create a society that celebrates diversity and challenges oppression.”
Members of the Jewish community can sign up to the letter here: https://www.jcore.org.uk/manifesto
