Condemnation for violent assault on Argentinian rabbi

Board of Deputies Senior Vice President Sheila Gewolb has reacted to an attack on Argentinian Rabbi Elyahu Shaman.

Sheila said: “The violent assault on Rabbi Elyahu Shaman, who is also a cantor at a synagogue in the Buenos Aires neighbourhood of Palermo, has deeply upset us. It’s not the first time that the Argentinian Jewish community has been under attack. Today, British Jews again show solidarity with our Argentinian sisters and brothers.”
