Over 200 faith leaders, including Reform rabbis, have written to the Prime Minister urging action and a revision of the Government’s policy towards refugees.

On the anniversary of the death of Aylan Kurdi, the leaders of Reform, Masorti and Liberal Judaism, council chiefs and celebrities called on the UK government to avoid more deaths and bring in 387 eligible refugee children from Calais immediately.

Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner addressed a crowd of 10,000 people in Trafalgar Square organised by Solidarity with Refugees on the eve of a UN summit for refugees and migrants hosted by Barack Obama in New York.

Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner was also present in Parliament Square on Monday when 2,500 used life jackets worn by refugee children and adults crossing from Turkey to the Greek island of Chios were laid out to raise awareness of the thousands of refugees who die at sea.
