WATCH: Chief Rabbi Gives Evidence to UK Anti-Semitism Committee

The UK Home Affairs Committee is carrying out a short inquiry into anti-Semitism, looking at whether prejudice against the Jewish community has increased and the particular dangers facing Jewish people arising from terrorism.

Last Thursday evidence was given by Ephraim Mirvis, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth; Sir Mick Davis, Chairman, Jewish Leadership Council and Mark Gardner, Director of Communications, Community Security Trust.

The video above gives an insight into some of the evidence taken as those called to appear spoke to MPs about hatred towards Jews in the UK.
