On Saturday, a group of 20 men and women stormed the Ahavas Torah synagogue in London.
They threw objects towards doors, smashed windows and made anti-Semitic comments. And while police were originally treating the attack as a racial incident, according to Times of Israel, Rabbi Maurice David says the attack was probably not religiously motivated and was an example of 'anti-social behaviour.'
“The incident is being treated as an anti-Semitic incident, due to remarks made by one of the group. At this early stage, there is no suggestion that this was a far-right or extremist attack but rather the completely unacceptable actions of a drunken group,” London’s Metropolitan police said in a statement.
A video of the incident has gone viral. In it, young Jews can be seen holding broken chairs for protection as the angry mob tries to enter.
Times of Israel reports that the incident could have begun after an exchange of words between party-goers and Jewish men outside the synagogue.
In total, four men and two women were arrested, according to Reuters.
The names of those arrested have not been released.
