Insult to Dweck

AS a senior member of south Manchester’s Shaare Hayim Sephardi Congregation, I object to the heading on Doreen Wachmann’s column which referred to Rabbi Joseph Dweck as the “gay rumpus rabbi”.

This is indeed a gross insult to Rabbi Dweck who is the leader of the Sephardi community in the UK and also to our community.

I would hate to think what would be printed if a Sephardi referred, in similar terms, to Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis.
