Shomrim of North London is proud to be a leader in reaching out to, and uniting, other faiths and cultures.
In recent years, politicians and the general public have become more alert to the dangers of different communities leading separate lives, potentially leading to sectarianism and the decline of social cohesion.
People from the Jewish and Muslim communities feel especially at risk, as they are easily identified by their appearance. There is considerable anxiety about increasing hate-crime in the local community, especially among vulnerable people, such as the elderly, women and children.
Furthermore, their unique cultures often prevent them from joining with others and appreciating their commonalities.
By serving the entire community, helping hundreds of crime victims from every social group, Shomrim create the foundation that is the basis of a harmonious and peaceful society. With programs such as our No Place for Hate Program, Challenge and Heal workshops in schools, Shomrim is actively working together as a community for the common good.
There is no more effective argument against anti-Semitism than the work we do helping people of all faiths and none every single day.
For many, Shomrim’s assistance is their first personal experience with Orthodox Jews.
We will continue working to increase understanding, respect, and tolerance, ensuring a safer, and more cohesive future for all.
