The Board is backing an important rally taking place in Manchester on Sunday, led by guest speaker Vice President Jonathan Arkush, with a clear message that we all support: SAY NO TO ANTISEMITISM, which saw very disturbing levels during the Gaza conflict.
The Manchester community is to be commended for organising the event, which the Board hopes will be strongly supported by communities from across the north of England and beyond.
Date: Sunday 19th October 2014
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Venue: Cathedral Gardens, Manchester City Centre (behind the National Football Museum)
There will be big name speakers from both within and from outside the Jewish community at the rally, led by:
Rabbi Daniel Walker – Heaton Park Hebrew Congregation
Rabbi Amir Ellituv – Sha’are Hayim Sephardi Congregation, Hale
Rt Hon Jim Murphy MP – Shadow Secretary of State for International Development
Ivan Lewis MP – Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland
Henry Ferster – Holocaust Survivor
Jonathan Arkush – Vice President, Board of Deputies
