Jewish groups derided the decision by London’s controversial mayor to publish a guide to Jewish sites in the capital. Ken Livingstone, who caused widespread anger after comparing a Jewish journalist to a concentration camp guard last month, said the 26-page booklet showed “the enormous contributions of generation after generation of Jewish people across all fields of social, political, cultural and economic life.” But community groups said the pamphlet, which provides details of museums, synagogues, films, live music and walking tours, was an insincere gesture following a string of incidents that have outraged British Jews.
