Campaign Against Antisemitism showcased our collaborative efforts with our friends and partners at Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, at a well-attended community event earlier this week.
We participated in the volunteer group’s annual Open Day where we met with members of the Stamford Hill community, including communal leaders, and spoke to attendees about our work.
The event comes amid a recent spate of incidents carried out against identifiably Jewish members of the community in Stamford Hill. These include children being attacked, women being assaulted, and Jewish-owned shops being smashed.
Campaign Against Antisemitism is proud to work closely with Shomrim, with whom we have an information-sharing agreement, enabling us to collaborate in real-time on cases.
Campaign Against Antisemitism’s analysis of Home Office statistics shows that an average of over three hate crimes are directed at Jews every single day in England and Wales, with Jews more than four times likelier to be targets of hate crimes than any other faith group.
