Archbishop and Chief Rabbi meet friends of Hannah Bladon in Jerusalem


The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, visited the Hebrew University in Jerusalem today with Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, to meet the friends of UK student Hannah Bladon, who was murdered in Israel last month.

Archbishop Justin, who is on a 10-day visit to the Holy Land, heard heart-warming tributes to Hannah before leading prayers for her and her family.

He then signed a book of messages which had been compiled by the students, which will be given to Hannah's parents.

Hannah's funeral is next week.
