Jonathan Arkush reacts to Western Wall skirmishes

Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has reacted to the skirmishes which broke out at the Western Wall in Jerusalem yesterday.

He said: “The undignified and sometimes violent scenes at Judaism’s holiest site do no credit to the Jewish people as a whole. The Israeli Government came to a very positive, historic compromise in January. This should be implemented with all due haste and all sides should respect the agreement.”
