London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, appears to have become an orthodox and chasidic Jew.  Well, at least for a few minutes.  The conservative politician who was educated at Eton and Oxford and is running for a second term in the upcoming mayoral election, recently donned the famous black cap associated with the chasidic community.

In 2008, Johnson decided to break from the tradition of not offering an opinion on other countries’ Presidential elections, when he publicly voiced his support for then Senator Barack Obama.

    I had the great privilege of knowing Mr. Gershon Jacobson, personally. My first (and lasting) impression of him was that of a highly intelligent and very friendly person. I was a steady reader of “The Algemeiner Journal” from the outset.
    It’s heartwarming to know that there is a continuation and continuity to Mr. Jacobson’s legacy of intelligence, fairness and friendship to all human beings.
