Senior Reform Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner has said she still can’t write about her father, Lord Janner, even after he died.
Taking to social media, the widely-respected Reform rabbi spoke for the first time about the passing of her father, a former president of the Board of Deputies who was alleged to have sexually abused teenage boys while he was a politician in Leicester.
“It was such a blessing that our father (z”l) died so peacefully,” she wrote on Facebook. “It’s a very strange world where I started to write my thoughts about him here but realised that I can’t because of the accusations that are ongoing.”
She thanked those who had helped her feel “so loved” before saying she would “read properly the beautiful things that people have written in condolence letters and emails and try to restore my body and soul towards the next secular year”.
