It is being reported that a second rabbi has written to his congregants urging them to vote for the party most likely to defeat Labour in their constituency.
Rabbi Yuval Keren of Southgate Progressive Synagogue wrote that “the problem lies with Jeremy Corbyn and the present Labour leadership who tolerate and allow antisemitism to rise from within its ranks”.
He went on to suggest that “if you too believe that a Corbyn-led government would be detrimental to Jewish life as we know it, you should put aside all other considerations and vote for the party that is most likely to defeat Labour in your local constituency.”
Rabbi Keren’s letter makes reference to that of Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain, who wrote in similar terms to his congregants a few days ago.
On 28th May, the Equality and Human Rights Commission launched a full statutory investigation following a formal referral and detailed legal representations from Campaign Against Antisemitism, which is the complainant.
Over 57,000 people have now signed our petition denouncing Jeremy Corbyn as an antisemite and declaring him “unfit to hold any public office.”
