Charedim say thanks for their warm welcome in Southend

A representative of Southend’s new Chasidic community spoke at an interfaith gathering as part of a series of events to mark the former town’s upgrade to a city.

The award of city status was granted last autumn as a tribute to local MP Sir David Amess, killed in an attack last year, who had been an ardent campaigner for it.

The Chasidic representative was Binyonim Bineth, who observed: “As newcomers to Southend, the Chasidic community has not only been accepted — we have been embraced.

“Southend stands as a beacon of light in its inclusivity and its vision for the future.”

Belz Chasidim from Stamford Hill began moving into the seaside resort around six years ago.
