Ahead of the Senedd elections, the Jewish Community has launched its Jewish Manifesto for Wales. The bilingual Jewish Manifesto for Wales / Maniffesto Iddewig Cymru, drafted by the South Wales Jewish Representative Council and the Board of Deputies of British Jews, addresses the issues that concern Welsh Jews. The community’s policy priorities are summarised in the #TenCommitments / #YDegYmrwtmiad that candidates are being asked to support which include implementation of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of antisemitism, the promotion of links with Israel and back the provision of culturally sensitive public services.”
Laurence Kahn, Chair of the South Wales Jewish Representative Council said: “The Jewish Manifesto for Wales guides Senedd candidates on how they can ensure that Wales continues to be a great place to be Jewish. We urge them to support it.”
Marie van der Zyl, President of the Board of Deputies said: “As our society recovers from the pandemic, this manifesto provides a road map to elected representatives on how they can serve their Jewish constituents. Following its recommendations will help ensure that the Jewish community is supported and valued.”
