A representative from the board of Deputies of British Jews joined a mulltifaith “vigil of hope” on Monday evening in Tottenham.
The event was arranged following the death of resident Mark Duggan and the violent protests and riots that followed.
As riots again erupted across London, faith and lay leaders from the Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities gathered at a church to call for calm. Tottenham MP David Lammy also attended.
Phil Rosenberg, the Board’s interfaith officer, said that seeing London’s different communities coming together gave hope that “a city so dear to us all” could be rebuilt.
