London haredi takes part In Olympic Torch relay
Efrayim Goldstain becomes one of 187 Londoners to carry Olympic Torch as it arrives in British capital

Ultra-Orthodox Efrayim (22) was one of 187 people to carry the Olympic Torch as it arrived in the British capital this week, ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games.


Goldstain, who serves on London’s Shomrim Patrol, donned the official Olympic Torch bearers' uniform – the same as the other 8,000 torch bearers.



He was, however, only one to receive an official Olympic yarmulke, Jewish online magazine reported.
