RAB­BIS HAVE writ­ten to their Labour MP to con­vey their “dis­may and strong op­po­si­tion” over her con­stituency party’s de­ci­sion to af­fil­i­ate with the pro-Cor­byn, finge Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL) group.

The let­ter, which was sent to Cather­ine West, MP for the Hornsey & Wood Green con­stituency in North Lon­don, and Celia Dig­nan, chair of the lo­cal Labour party, was from Rabbi David Ma­son of Muswell Hill United Syn­a­gogue, Rabbi Nicky Liss of High­gate United Syn­a­gogue, and the chairs and Board of Deputies rep­re­sen­ta­tives of both shuls. In the let­ter, they said JVL “op­posed the adop­tion of the IHRA def­i­ni­tion (of an­ti­semitism) and has given sup­port to in­di­vid­u­als who are no longer in the party due to their re­peated of­fen­sive state­ments”.
