By Jessica Elgot, December 24, 2010

Rabbi Arnold Saunders, the Jewish chaplain for the armed forces has recorded a video message for Jewish troops away over the holiday period.

The former Higher Crumpsall and Higher Broughton Synagogue minister was the only Jewish representative to record the message. Other messages included videos from Baroness Warsi, the former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey and representatives of the Catholic, Muslim, Buddhist and Sikh communities.

The messages are part of a ‘Faces for the Forces’ campaign from video website Winkball which has recorded 500,000 messages of support for troops, including celebrities and sports stars like Sharon Osbourne, Pixie Lott and Sir Alex Ferguson.
