Chief Rabbi: Jewish Families Want to Leave the Netherlands

An increasing number of Jewish families want to leave the Netherlands because of the rise in anti-Semitism.  They feel unsafe and are being threatened and insulted on the streets.  This was said by Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs, in the television program, Een Vandaag. He specifically quoted a Jewish individual who said, “My parents have suffered enough.  Should I also suffer?” Jacobs said that he himself also wonders whether or not it is safe for him to remain in the Netherlands.  He has, however, come to the conclusion that he has to stay - because the captain is the last one to leave the ship.
