The Campaign Against Antisemitism has been granted charitable status.
The news comes just over a year after the grassroots group was formed as a response to the conflict between Israel and Hamas and rise in anti-Semitic incidents that followed. Thousands joined its rally calling for zero tolerance to the scourge last summer.
CAA Chairman Gideon Falter said: “Our newly-confirmed charitable status will help allow ordinary people to support our work. Our charity’s goal is to tackle antisemitism through education and enforcement, with the agility of a start-up, the expertise of established professionals in various fields and where needed, a dash of chutzpah.”
CAA – which has held meetings with police, CPS and Government – said it has a rapidlt growing team of Jewish and non-Jewish volunteers.
