Board of Deputies reacts to BBC Religion and Ethics Review

|

Board of Deputies Chief Executive Gillian Merron has welcomed the BBC’s Religion and Ethics review in which the broadcaster commits to expanding coverage around Jewish festivals.

She said: “The BBC has a vital role to play in dispelling myths and prejudices. We are encouraged that the corporation has undertaken a wide-ranging review, consulting the Board of Deputies and other stakeholders. We are glad that the BBC has committed itself to expanding its coverage around religious festivals. We would also like to see BBC coverage take into account the full diversity of the Jewish community in the UK and for that coverage to strive to be both rigorous and accurate.”
