Sir, We need to put the brakes on the idea that Britain is not safe for Jews (News, Jan 14). We are living in a wonderful time for British Jewry, and any suggestion to the contrary simply isn’t true. Yes, people are worried. But the results of the Campaign Against Antisemitism survey do not tally with the experiences of those I meet daily. Britain is not an antisemitic country. The idea that we are living in something resembling 1930s Europe is not credible. In Britain today, we have a government working with the community to combat antisemitism. Twenty-first century Britain is a great place to be a Jew.
