Chabad Representative at Queen's Salutation Event

Elizabeth the 2nd, the queen of England, held a salutation event marking the 350th year since the revival of the Jewish community in the kingdom. The event was attended by salient representatives of the Jewish community. "I believe that at this time, Jews are positioned honorably within the British society, and that the chief Rabbi is considered even by non-Jews as the 'voice of conscience", said Rabbi Hershel Glick, one the invited guests. "Such and event held by the queen, who personally serves as the hostess, illustrates a substantial degree of respect towards the Jewish community", he told interviewers of the NRG site.
