The Chief Rabbi and Valerie have concluded a memorable visit to the Jewish community of Amsterdam.

They met with the Rabbinic and lay leaders of Dutch Jewry as well as school children, teaching staff, students and members of Youth Movements.

The Chief Rabbi officiated at a special service to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the JCC Buitenveldert. He and Valerie were guests of honour at a large communal Shabbat luncheon and the Chief Rabbi delivered a major shiur to the Amsterdam community.

Wherever he went, the Chief Rabbi congratulated the Dutch Jewish community for impressively reviving Jewish life in Holland after over three quarters of Dutch Jewry were murdered during the Shoah.
