A London rabbi has been assaulted by a man who threatened to kill him before stripping to his underwear and being arrested by police.

The anti-Semitic assault took place on Monday in Clapton Common. The rabbi was walking down the street when he was assaulted by a man who took the rabbi’s hat off his head and threw it to the ground saying, “Dirty Jew, I am going to kill you!”

The attacker then stripped down to his underwear and “made explicit gestures” outside the synagogue.

Hackney Police arrested the suspect.

According to the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAAS) a few days before this latest incident a man yelled “Heil Hitler” as he drove past a Jewish pedestrian in the area.

Anti-Semitic hate crimes are sadly continuing throughout the country with Jews almost four times more likely to be the targets of hate crime than any other faith group.
