Charedi leaders in Stamford Hill have urged religious Jews to get immunised against measles and for them not to send any of their children to school if one family member has it, after an outbreak in Israel found its way to Hackney.

Local health authority practitioners have been producing literature in Yiddish and Hebrew encouraging those not already inoculated to get a jab, amidst warnings from rabbis that those opposed to it are risking the lives of others.
