Leeds clergy demon­strate Is­rael sup­port

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

CHRIS­TIAN CLERGY were in the suc­cah at the Etz Chaim Syn­a­gogue in Leeds for the for­mal pre­sen­ta­tion of the Shalom Dec­la­ra­tion, in sup­port and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of Is­rael, to Leeds Jewish Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil pres­i­dent Si­mon Jack­son.

Board of Deputies con­sul­tant Steven Jaffe, who spear­headed the ini­tia­tive, said it was “a ma­jor de­vel­op­ment”.

The doc­u­ment, launched in March, calls on Church re­li­gious and lay lead­ers to work to com­bat an­ti­semitism and to strengthen co-op­er­a­tion be­tween the UK and Is­rael.
