Birmingham's King David Prim-ary has had its Jewish studies budget slashed.
Funding from Birmingham Hebrew Congregation has been cut from £20,000 to £12,000 annually. Birmingham Jewish Education Board has ended its varying contribution, most recently £3,000.
The voluntary-aided school now has only 65 Jewish children out of a roll of 245. More than half the pupils are Muslim.
Headteacher Steve Langford said the cuts had come at a bad time. "It is going to be tough, with costs rising."
