Update: An artist has now stepped forward and admitted that the sign was an ill-conceived piece of ‘street art’.
A ‘beware of the Jews’ sign has been found by Stamford Hill Shomrim. Attached to a lamppost, the sign mimics an official road sign indicating a hazard, but instead of warning of schoolchildren or a skid hazard, the sign warns of charedi Jews.
Shomrim has reported the sign to the Metropolitan Police Service and the local council.
Barry Bard, Supervisor at Stamford Hill Shomrim, said: “The sign has caused a lot of concern amongst local Jewish residents, especially as it is in such close proximity to a synagogue.”
