Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party leader, has criticised a parliamentary committee’s report on antisemitism in Britain for its “disproportionate emphasis on Labour”.
The Commons’ Home Affairs Select Committee, which had been investigating antisemitism in Britain since April, said Mr Corbyn does not fully appreciate “the distinct nature of contemporary antisemitism”.
London remains a “significant global financial centre” even after Brexit, according to the UK arm of the Israeli financial institution Bank Leumi.
At a Rosh Hashanah party for the bank’s clients, partners and associates on Wednesday night, Eli Katzav, CEO of Bank Leumi (UK), underlined the continued importance of the British capital as a financial centre in the world.
The Liberal Democrats will be a "warm home" for Jews who have been alienated by Labour's antisemitism crisis, according to Tim Farron.
Describing his "very sincere" desire to offer the community a centre-left alternative, the Lib Dem leader is promoting his party as the only option for Jewish Labour activists who feel they cannot support Jeremy Corbyn.
Proposed changes to the boundaries of Parliamentary constituencies may significantly affect areas with large Jewish populations.
The Boundary Commission for England published its boundary recommendations this morning. The proposals, due to take effect in 2018, include suggestions to create new constituencies, abolish others, and redraw the borders of many more.
Senator Bernie Sanders has denied that he sent a message of support to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Mr Corbyn told supporters at a phone bank event on Monday that the Jewish senator, who lost out to Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic Party nomination, had favourably compared the two politicians.
A spokesman for Mr Corbyn later admitted that this was a mistake.
