Derby day for chief rabbis
The 1pm start for the installation of Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis in St John’s Wood on Sunday is unusually early.
But could the lunchtime kick-off have been arranged for the sake of football fans, who would like to get to the Arsenal v Spurs derby taking place later that afternoon?
I wouldn’t be surprised if a giant screen is erected to show the game live at the reception which follows the installation.
Outgoing Chief Lord Sacks is a Gooner, while his successor Rabbi Mirvis prays for Spurs.
