Students at a Jewish school were taught about the importance of being kind to others by a very special guest.

The Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, who leads Britain’s Jewish Community, held a special assembly at Yavneh College in Hillside Avenue in Borehamwood yesterday.

He spoke about the Talmudic acronym Yavneh, which represents the four blessings of wine, spices, fire and the difference between the sacred and profane, said at the end of Shabbat.

He also discussed the importance of making good choices and how we relate to others in our daily lives.

Pupils were impressed by his message, with one saying: “It shows us that you need to respect people and how your actions affect the people around you.”

Headteacher Spencer Lewis said it was a “pleasure” to welcome the Chief Rabbi.

He added: “We are grateful for the Chief Rabbi’s support of Jewish schools in the UK and we look forward to welcoming him to Yavneh on many future occasions.”
