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
