ISRAEL PARADE CASH
Your report, No Liberal cash for 60th rally (November 16), misrepresents the support Liberal Judaism will be giving to marking Israel at 60. In addition to promoting tours to Israel, a service of celebration, regional events, an educators’ seminar and a school competition, the officers of Liberal Judaism are committed to utilising its resources to ensure full participation of our members in the Salute to Israel Parade.
When Liberal Judaism was approached with a funding request for the parade, it took the view, which it believes is held by other synagogal organisations, that it was not within our charitable remit to contribute to the core funding of the parade. Liberal Judaism will play its role in guaranteeing that it is successful. Rabbi Danny Rich, Chief Executive, Liberal Judaism Maple Street, London W1T
