London, UK - On Wednesday, Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis encouraged Jewish men and women to join the Metropolitan Police force, saying that for the benefit of “all of our society,’ Jews need to play a role and be “part of that protection force.”
the JC.com (http://bit.ly/1Sryh3C) reports that Rabbi Mirvis made his comments immediately following a briefing by Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe before 150 attendees at his annual conference of UK rabbis at Finchley Synagogue in north London.
During his remarks, Sir Bernard pleaded with rabbis to urge their congregants to step up efforts in reporting anti-Semitism, saying that the current level of anti-Semitism is “severe.”
