On July 3, outside the Clapton Common Synagogue Kehal Yetev Lev in East London, the couple pushed and struck guests, and whipped them with a dog leash, the prosecution told the court, according to The Times. Ineta Winiarski shouted anti-Semitic epithets while striking the guests.

Magistrate Caroline Dillon said she did not sentence the couple immediately “because we need to find out more about your behavior before sentencing,” the London-based Jewish Chronicle reported.
