Neighbourhood watch group Shomrim has released CCTV footage of a Toyota Prius driving through Golders Green whose occupants are alleged to have thrown eggs at Jewish worshippers outside a synagogue.

According to the volunteer security force, the incident took place late on Tuesday night, at approximately 23.40, as worshippers performed the Kiddush Levanah ceremony outside a shul.

On Wednesday, Shomrim North West tweeted: “Last night occupants of a blue Toyota Prius deliberately threw eggs at Jews outside a synagogue. If you witnessed this incident or if you have any information relating to the occupants of the vehicle please call police on 101 or Shomrim NW London on 0300 999 1234.

Earlier this week a 26-year old man was arrested after he was reported to be shouting anti-Semitic abuse at Jews on Golders Green Road, spitting at them and performing the Nazi salute.

A spokesman for Shomrim said: “The abuse of Jews with the language and symbols of Nazi Germany is intended to maximise the distress caused to the victims. It is a form of anti-Semitism expressly designed to arouse fear, and must be treated severely by the criminal justice system.”
