The Board of Deputies of British Jews (BDBJ) has expressed condolences towards Her Late Majesty the Queen along with thousands of others across the Leeds and Manchester communities.
A statement by the BDBJ describes the late Queen as “the mother of our nation,” written by the board’s President, Marie van der Zyl: “There are many things we will miss about our Queen. Perhaps the greatest of these was her utter reliability.
“Her moral compass was strong and true. She would always have the appropriate words for an occasion. We will remember the Queen with love, with affection and with great respect. May her memory be a blessing.”
