The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

I’m not cer­tain why I am sur­prised by com­ments such as those made by Dr An­thony Is­sacs (Let­ters, Novem­ber 2) or ac­tions taken by Rabbi Danny Rich, which sug­gest that the Jewish com­mu­nity has not done enough to reach out to the Labour Party.

The BoD , JLC and Jewish Labour Move­ment have all reached out. How far do those on the re­ceiv­ing end of racism need to go? Should the civil rights mo­ment in Amer­ica reach out to the KKK?

I fail to un­der­stand how Danny Rich in­vites Jeremy Corbyn and Jenny Man­son to a Shab­bat din­ner and claims it is a pri­vate mat­ter.

I would think that invit­ing the leader of the Labour Party and the “leader” of JVL, while be­ing the Chief Ex­ec­u­tive and Se­nior Rabbi of Lib­eral Ju­daism, some­what blurs the pri­vacy claim. Mal­colm Ger­ber
