David Cameron declares support for Chief Rabbi’s Shabbat UK

B5Aj9iiCIAAMSI0David Cameron  has declared his support for the Chief Rabbi’s Shabbat UK initative taking place this weekend – the largest national project for the Jewish communities in the United Kingdom.

The prime minister said: “This is a wonderful Jewish initiative that brings together tens of thousands across our country to celebrate the unity and sense of community that has been a hallmark of Jewish life for generations.

“But Shabbat UK also has a wider message that speaks to everyone in Britain, because we can all benefit from taking a moment to appreciate the value of family, friends and community life. I want to wish everyone taking part Shabbat Shalom.”

Meanwhile, one of Shabbat UK’s showpiece events – a havdalah celebration – was forced to relocate at the eleventh hour this week from Brent Cross to Kinloss. More than 1,000 tickets have been sold.
