Earlier this month, Paul Daniel Newman, 57, was found guilty at Stratford Magistrates Court of racially or religiously aggravated disorderly behaviour as well as causing fear or provocation of violence.
At this week’s sentencing, Mr Newman of Ealing was handed 20 weeks imprisonment, suspended for 18 months.
He was also ordered to comply with 30 days rehabilitation activity requirement and six months in an alcohol treatment programme.
In addition, he must also pay £625 prosecution costs and £154 victim surcharge.
Varinder Hayre, CPS District Crown Prosecutor and London North Hate Crime lead, said: “London is a diverse City and it is completely unacceptable for the Jewish community to be subjected to this kind of antisemitic hatred. Hate crime will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted robustly.
“I’d also like to thank the Metropolitan Police for their diligence in helping to ensure justice for the victim and providing victim support.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism works closely with Shomrim, with whom we have a data-sharing agreement.
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.
