RABBI DE­FENDS BURKA-WEAR­ING

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

ONE OF Europe’s most se­nior rab­bis has at­tacked the French govern­ment’s ban on Mus­lim women wear­ing the burka. In an ar­ti­cle for the Rabbi Pin­chas Gold­schmidt, pres­i­dent of the Con­fer­ence of Euro­pean Rab­bis, warned that re­li­gious com­mu­ni­ties in Europe were feel­ing “marginalised”. The rabbi’s views ap­peared to have struck a chord with many Jewish lead­ers. Sources close to him said most of the re­ac­tions were pos­i­tive.
