Prince William visits synagogue amid rising antisemitism

STORY: A week after the heir-to-the-throne called for an end to the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza saying "too many have been killed", William met young ambassadors from the Holocaust Educational Trust who are seeking to tackle hatred amid soaring abuse and attacks on Britain's Jewish community.

During his visit to the Western Marble Arch Synagogue, the prince, who wore a kippah, the traditional Jewish cap, met Holocaust survivors and listened as Jewish students recounted how there had been what one described as an "explosion" in antisemitism, including death threats and assaults.

He also met with 94-year-old Holocaust survivor Renee Salt to hear of her experiences.
