Queen Margrethe has attended a service at a synagogue in Copenhagen to show support for the Jewish community in the aftermath of the Hamas attack in Israel.
The Queen of Denmark was joined by the country’s Prime Minister and Foreign Minister at the service in Krystalgade on October 14th 2023.
The national anthems of both Denmark and Israel were sung at the service. There were speeches from the Head Rabbi and Israel’s ambassador during the ceremony.
In the early morning of 7 October, Palestinian terrorists from the group Hamas infiltrated Israel by air, land and sea – killing at least 1,200 people and injuring 1,700. The group took over 100 hostages back to the Gaza Strip.
A week on, Queen Margrethe, dressed in black, took part in the service in the Danish capital.
