The United Synagogue should have found out if he was Jewish in a more sensitive way.

lanne, miranda bryant's headline, which you copied, is untrue, and so is the first paragraph of her report

he did not have to prove he was jewish, on the contrary the court proved it for him …

Holocaust survivor has to prove he is Jewish
Miranda Bryant
A Holocaust survivor who lost half his family at the hands of the Nazis today told how he was forced to go to court to prove he is Jewish

from jessica elgot's report (eight days earlier, 22/7/2010) at http://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/36100/man-80-confirmed-jewish

Dayan Gelley told Mr Marks that a geneaologist was working on the case.

Shortly after Mr Marks contacted the JC, he received a phone call and a letter from Dayan Gelley, confirming his Jewish status. The letter said: "We have carried out our own research and are now satisfied that you are Jewish by birth."

this seems to show the beth din in rather a good light, contrary to miranda bryant's agenda
