Arkush re­veals abuse

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

THE DAUGH­TER of the pres­i­dent of the Board of Deputies, Jonathan Arkush, was the tar­get of an­tisemitic abuse, he has re­vealed.

Mr Arkush, speak­ing at the Board on Sun­day, said his daugh­ter and his brother-in-law were walk­ing home from syn­a­gogue in Bore­ham­wood last Fri­day evening when a passer-by rolled down the car win­dow and shouted “Oi, Jew”.

“I don’t think it was in­tended as an en­tirely friendly greet­ing,” the Board leader said.

Mr Arkush sug­gested the ex­pe­ri­ence was “prob­a­bly typ­i­cal” of the ver­bal abuse which rep­re­sented the ma­jor­ity of last year’s record num­ber of an­tisemitic in­ci­dents doc­u­mented by the Com­mu­nity Se­cu­rity Trust in the UK.
