A Statement from GJEF

Posted by Admin on June 1, 2007

We have issued the following statement in response to criticism from Rabbi Chaim Jacobs, published in today’s edition of the Jewish Telegraph:

GJEF agree wholeheartedly with Rabbi Jacobs that the blog should not be used for posting offensive comments. As an organisation we take responsibility for removing material that could be construed as inflammatory or is inflammatory, and have removed several comments in the past. However, we do believe that the blog offers an opportunity for members of the community to air their views and opinions about matters of communal interest and we believe that this is a welcome addition to communal life. Everyone is entitled to their opinion – secular or religious, Zionist or non-Zionist. GJEF does not agree with all that is written on the blog.
