JEWISH COMMUNITY BADLY HIT BY CORONA
SPECIAL REPORT LIANNE KOLIRIN Jewish Leaders have called upon the community to ‘preserve life’ and tackle was appears to be a disproportionate number of COVID-19 deaths among Jews.
More than 5 per cent of those killed by a coronavirus in the UK by Wednesday were Jews, despite only about 0.5 per cent of the population being Jewish.
In a direct plea to the community, Marie van der Zyl, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said:
‘There is no higher value in Judaism than preserving life, so please do everything you can to follow the government’s guidelines and stay home unless you absolutely cannot.
We will get through this but it needs everyone to play their part.
The Board of Deputies collated figures from Jewish funerals to record 25 Jewish coronavirus victims from a total of 465 in the UK as of Wednesday.
The true figure could be higher as not all would have traditional funerals, while the Board’s number includes only those whose death certificates identify COVID-19 as the cause of death.
As with other religious denominations, synagogues are shut at present.
Dr Jonathan Boyd, executive director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research, urged caution regarding the figures as the numbers were very small and it was ‘too early to tell’ if Jews were disproportionately affected. Like this story? Share it with others.
