Jewish community’s tribute to Jo Cox

ANAS Sarwar MSP visited Giffnock Synagogue as part of the Great Get Together event to remember murdered Labour MP Jo Cox.

He invited the Jewish community to take part and to sign the statement: “We can’t leave the fight against all forms of prejudice and hate to individual communities.”

As Jewish community representatives couldn’t take part on Shabbat, Mr Sarwar suggested that he would visit Giffnock Synagogue the day before to allow them to sign the statement.

At the visit, organised by the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities and the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council, the politician and two members of his team were given a tour of the synagogue, led by Rep Council co-president Evy Yedd and minister Rabbi Moshe Rubin.

On Sunday, an informal Great Get Together event, in Rouken Glen Park was attended by Mrs Yedd and fellow co-chairman Nicola Livingston.
