Representatives from the Jewish community have meet with the Government, Police and other parts of the justice system to begin working together in implementing recommendations of the All-Party inquiry into anti-Semitism.
At a meeting in Whitehall between Phil Woolas MP who formed the working group and a delegation which included Jon Benjamin, chief executive of the Board of Deputies, Richard Benson, chief executive of the Community Security Trust and Jeremy Newmark, chief executive of the Jewish Leadership Council, the group will work on moving forward the 35 recommendations that have been proposed to deal with the rising tide of anti-Semitism in the UK.
"This working group will play a vital role in addressing the disturbing rise in anti-Semitism in the UK," said Benson. "We are looking forward to working with the Government in order to help ensure the safety and well-being of our community."
