The Board of Deputies of British Jews welcomes Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s announcement of further funding to protect the Jewish community.

“We commend the Prime Minister on his powerful speech at the CST dinner last night, pledging more funding to protect the Jewish community, outlining a new protocol to safeguard our elected representatives and effectively police protests, and drawing a clear line between democratic dissent and mob intimidation.

“The last few months have seen an extreme rise in antisemitic hate in the UK, which has had a significant effect on British Jews. The Prime Minister’s announcement has made it clear – those bringing chaos to our streets and academic institutions will no longer be allowed to act with impunity.”
