The UK must redouble its efforts to “wipe out anti-Semitism”, Home Secretary Theresa May has said.
Mrs May said she “never thought I’d see the day when members of the Jewish community” would be “fearful” of staying in the UK.
She was speaking at a service in London to remember those killed in the terror attacks in France this month, including four people in a kosher supermarket.
Police say there is “heightened concern” about risks to Jewish people.
The president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Vivian Wineman, welcomed the home secretary’s speech, saying Jews in the UK should be alert to the terror threat but not alarmed.
