A senior rabbi has flown straight to Israel after teenagers in London beat him severely and left him bleeding on the ground. Early Friday evening, the Rabbi was approached as he walked along Amhurst Park in Stamford Hill by two teenagers described as black and wearing dark hooded clothing.
The teenagers allegedly shouted “Kill Jews” and “F*** Jews” and beat him, leaving him bleeding on the ground.
The incident took place during the Jewish Sabbath, when orthodox Jews do not use telephones and has now been reported to the police and Stamford Hill Shomrim, a volunteer Jewish neighbourhood watch patrol.
On 8th December, regardless of religion, race or politics, Jews and non-Jews alike will gather in Parliament Square to declare that they stand together against antisemitism in the face of Jew-hatred in politics and mounting anti-Jewish hate crime.
