True Torah Jews of London Take to the Streets

July 15, 2010

Read the press release announcing the demonstration.

England's Orthodox Jewish community came out in protest against the Zionist state on Tuesday, July 13 in front of the Israeli Embassy on Kensington High Street in London. The focus was on the current destruction of an ancient cemetery in Jaffa, but as the signs and interviews made clear, the protestors were opposed to the existence of the Zionist state and to its right to speak and act in the name of world Jewry.

The demonstration was organized by True Torah Jews' London branch, and it enjoyed the support of the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, representing a wide spectrum of London Jewry. The following rabbis signed a poster in support of the demonstration:
