Liberal Rabbi Meets with Bombed Mosque Community

June 6th 2013

Finchley Progressive Synagogue’s Rabbi Rebecca Qassim Birk met today with the community of the Al-Rahma Islamic Centre in Muswell Hill, which was destroyed yesterday in an anti-Muslim attack. The meeting was hosted by New North London Synagogue’s Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg, and was also attended by Rabbi David Mason of Muswell Hill United Synagogue. The rabbis offered support and solidarity to the Al-Rahma community.

Rabbi Birk spoke on behalf of everyone at Liberal Judaism, saying: “We are horrified and deeply saddened by the devastating attack on the  Al-Rahma Islamic Centre in Muswell hill. It was a despicable act of hatred and we the local Jewish community and Barnet residents stand with the Coppetts Road Muslim community in our sympathy, support and offers of practical help.”
