Student at British private school tried to force-feed ham pizza to Jewish student

(JTA) — A teenage student at a prestigious British private school was suspended for trying to force-feed a slice of ham pizza to a Jewish student while others watched.

The incident at Clifton College in Bristol, in southwest England, occurred in December but was first reported by the local media on Wednesday.

The Jewish student, 15, “suffered psychologically” from the incident, according to the Bristol Post. He continues to attend the school, as do the teens who attempted to force him to eat the ham-topped slice. The newspaper reported it was a short suspension but did not say how long.
