The Board of Deputies has reacted to reports of a planned visit by Israeli Rabbi  Yosef Mizrachi, whose comments on disabled children and the Holocaust have attracted huge criticism.

President Jonathan Arkush said: “We condemn all forms of hate speech, regardless of the source. Bigotry is not welcome in our community and that applies to this individual.”
