The Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls’ School in Stamford Hill, Hackney, said it is "absolutely horrified" that a huge wedding took place against its knowledge. It's the same school where Rabbi Avrohom Pinter, who tragically passed away from Covid-19 last year, used to be the headteacher. Rabbi Pinter was also elected as a Labour Councillor onto Hackney Council back in 1982, becoming the first rabbi in England to serve as a council member. He was an active member of the local community and a leading Jewish figure in London. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan paid tribute to Rabbi Pinter when he died last year.
. "May his memory be a blessing." Police were called to the school, on Egerton Road, where they found around 400 people crowded inside the school for what they later learned was a wedding. People had covered the windows of the school so no-one could see inside. Authorities are currently considering whether the organiser will get a £10,000 fine. Police already handed out five fixed penalty notices of £200 each to individuals at the gathering. Speaking after last night's events, a spokesperson for the Yesodey Hatorah School said: "We are absolutely horrified about last night’s event and condemn it in the strongest possible terms. We lease our hall to an external organisation which manages all lettings and, as such, we had no knowledge that the wedding was taking place. "We have terminated the agreement with immediate effect. We are investigating how this shocking breach has happened and have no plans to re-lease the premises to any third party.
