“Beware of Jews” sign spotted in Stamford Hill, London

A street sign giving the impression of reading to be ‘Beware of Jews’ was seen in the vicinity of a synagogue, Jews’ religious place, in North London, the BBC reported.

The neighbourhood, Stamford Hill, is said to be the largest Charedi Jewish community in Europe.

The sign’s resemblance to British road signs is what caught the eye. As it happens, the red triangular sign, that has been used, is used to warn drivers of potential hazards on British streets. However, instead of the regular symbols, a silhouette of an orthodox Jewish man capped with a fedora has been used in this one.

Notably, other such signs were also spotted in the same neighbourhood, including one displaying the impression of an elderly woman.

Area’s Member of Parliament, Dianne Abbot, said that the signs were “disgusting” and “unacceptable.”

An update suggests that the signs are a part of an art project, and the artist responsible has apologised for causing offence. The signs will, probably, be taken down soon following the number of complaints made to the London Police.
