The nightmare before Chanukah?
It’s the moment we’ve hoped for and dreaded in equal measure: the end of Corbyn’s Labour or dawn of Corbyn’s Britain. An early election amid Brexit chaos has long been considered the worst possible scenario by the vast majority in our community, whose nightmare is...

Pride in Israel and British Jewry at first Veteran Games

Why it’s right for community leaders to meet Corbyn
Last week, following our exclusive sit-down with Jeremy Corbyn, we declared his reassurances on tackling anti-Semitism within Labour were ‘not good enough’.
