Double trouble

    Lord Levy must be having a poor grass-court season.

    A fortnight ago he found the Shabbat sermon of Rabbi Julian Shindler – standing in for Rabbi Yitzchak Schochet at Mill Hill – was not to his liking.

    Rabbi Shindler kicked off by discussing how "all men have sexual fantasies".

    For Lord Levy it was all too much - amid much tut-tutting, he upped and left.

    The former Labour Party fundraiser followed it up last Shabbat by abandoning a lunch at Woodside Park Synagogue.

    Answering questions as the event's guest speaker, he disliked questioning about the Middle East and duly disappeared.

    Thirteen years of fiery Lords debates are clearly no rival for Shabbat shul visits.
