Whitehall celebration

October 17, 2008

The Jewish staff network within the Communities and Local Government department hosted its first-ever Rosh Hashanah event at its Central London premises. Over 30 people attended, including representatives from other ministry offices.

Marc Bernstein, from the CLG's extremism prevention division, said the idea had been "very well received". Rabbi Herschel Gluck, who officiated, said "it was a great opportunity for Jewish civil servants to get together".
