(London, Wednesday, 9 November 2016) – The Kantor King Solomon High School, a 940-pupil voluntary aided Jewish comprehensive in North East London was formally renamed at a special ceremony today. Opened in 1993, the school is Modern Orthodox but it provides places for children from all faiths.At the naming ceremony, Dr Moshe Kantor, President of the European Jewish Congress, in whose honour the school is now named, spoke about the importance of “proper education for surviving and development, because of its unbreakable link to wisdom and also vice versa.”
The European Jewish Congress (EJC) expresses its outrage and sadness as well as our deep solidarity with the people of France after last night’s terror attack in Nice on people celebrating Bastille Day. A driver rammed his truck into a crowd of people killing at least 80 people.
“It is difficult to express our pain and sadness after yet another terror attack on France,” Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the EJC, said. “At this time it is vital that we remain resolute in our unity to defeat this scourge of terrorism, because we know it will not falter, nor desist, from its murderous ideology.”
