An exhibition to teach schoolchildren across the country about life for Jewish people in the UK was launched this week.

The exhibition of Jewish life in Britain was officially opened at Pinner Synagogue, in Cecil Park, by treasurer of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Judge Laurence Brass, with the Mayor of Harrow Councillor Nana Asante.

The exhibition features stands with information on aspects of British Jewish life such as a mocked up Shabbat table, examples of kosher foods and puzzles.

The exhibition will travel round schools across the country as part of an educational tour.

Judge Brass said: “The new Jewish Living Exhibition is a key plank in the board’s strategy to address the ignorance and prejudice that can enable anti-Semitism to thrive, as well as giving a positive impression of Judaism.

“I am extremely proud of this excellent educational tool and I am delighted that we were able to launch it at such a well attended event in Harrow.”

Little is mentioned of antisemitism. In 2014, in some parts of the UK, Jews need a police escort when going to and from their synagogues. But why do the liberals keep quiet about this? Where are the UAF thugs? Where is the condemnation? It doesn't even make the news.

Deeply saddened and appalled that Jews are still facing such atrocious behaviour as they go about to and from their place of worship.

The kind of action described above to help educate our communities about the Jewish community,their traditions and history should make us more aware of what they stand for and reduce the prejudice that they are still experiencing.

This is undoubtedly an excellent educational tool and might be used in similar fashion by other communities who face similar prejudice,especially in these challenging times.High time we removed the ignorance which blights our peoples and fosters racists who pollute an otherwise wonderful and caring community.
