Jewish communities across the UK have held special services to remember the five men murdered in cold blood in a brutal terror attack at a Jerusalem synagogue. Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, Rabbi Aryeh Kupinsky, Rabbi Moshe Twersky, and Rabbi Kalman Levine and Zidan Saif were remembered with prayers and readings.
The Jewish Leadership Council and the Board of Deputies of British Jews co-ordinated these acts of remembrance and encouraged people to post photos from their communities to a Facebook page set up for the event. We were also heartened to witness acts of remembrance by people of different faiths.
