Brent adoption of antisemitism definition is ‘a Rosh Hashanah present for the community’

Board of Deputies Public Affairs Director Phil Rosenberg has reacted to the decision of Brent Council to pass a motion on the IHRA definition of antisemitism.

He said: “We were very pleased that the motion put to Brent Council on the IHRA Definition of antisemitism was passed unopposed. We wrote to every councillor prior to the debate and were delighted with the response. The clear message on antisemitism being unwelcome in Brent, or anywhere in our society, was a very good Rosh Hashanah present for the Jewish community.”
