The Uk's next Chief Rabbi has said that he was concerned over rising anti-semitism in Europe and decline in religious faith.
Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, who will be inducted as seventh Chief Rabbi since the role was formalised in 1845, added that however, he believed that the Jewish community in Britain has a ''bright future'':
We have a wonderful Jewish community in the UK and the results of the census are in many respects encouraging. I think we have a fantastic community in terms of its quality, not only in terms of its quantity.
Britain has been good to the Jews and the Jews have been good for Britain.
