Chief Rabbi warns ‘soul of nation is at stake’ if Labour wins General Election
Jeremy Corbyn’s election campaign has been struck by a significant intervention after the Chief Rabbi warned that the Labour leadership’s handling of anti-Semitism was “incompatible” with British values. Ephraim Mirvis said the “overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety” ahead of the December 12 poll and warned “the very soul of our nation is at stake”. Labour defended Mr Corbyn as a “lifelong campaigner against anti-Semitism” and disputed some of the rabbi’s claims in his article for The Times, which came ahead of the party launching its race and faith manifesto.
