Star Wars faith­ful’s joint force

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

IT’S In­ter­na­tional Star Wars Day on Thurs­day, lest you for­get, and what bet­ter way to mark it than to join the cam­paign of two cler­i­cal fans to have the first of the sci-fi se­ries de­clared Bri­tain’s na­tional film?

Rabbi Natan Levy, the Board of Deputies’ for­mer in­ter­faith of­fi­cer, and Dr Muham­mad Al-Hus­saini, launched their pe­ti­tion out­side Par­lia­ment, as a light­hearted ges­ture of in­ter­faith sol­i­dar­ity.

They at­tracted plenty of at­ten­tion from passersby, said Rabbi Levy. “After all, how of­ten do you see a sheikh wear­ing a kef­fiyeh and a Darth Vader t-shirt arm-in-arm with a rabbi?”
