    The Labour leader has taken time out of his preparations for next week's party conference to extend his good wishes to the British Jewish community on the New Year.

    Ed Miliband, who won the contest to succeed Gordon Brown on Rosh Hashanah last year, said he hoped the year ahead would be "filled with peace, happiness and success and may your families be healthy and happy".

    Mr Miliband, whose parents came to Britain to escape persecution of Jews during the Holocaust, described the community here as "an inspiration to us all".

    "I would like to thank you for the fantastic community work undertaken by Jewish voluntary organisations and individuals across the country," said the Labour Party's first Jewish leader. He added that we should "remember our achievements and take the time to celebrate them".

    "We also keep in mind those less fortunate than ourselves, and renew our commitment to strengthening the bonds of community and the values that make Britain great."
