Chief Rabbi: Jews Faced with Reality that They do not belong

On 14 September Queen Beatrix, who will be succeeded today by her son King Willem Alexander, will take official leave from the Dutch people. That date is also Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews. Holland’s Chief interprovincial Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs told the daily NRC Handelsblad: “Dutch Jews are again faced with a reality in which they do not belong, and that is painful.” He added that the organizers of the event – a national committee and the court – should have made sure that the date chosen would enable Jews to attend also.
