Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner, Senior Rabbi to Reform Judaism has responded to a recording of NEC Labour official Pete Willsman saying that the Israeli embassy was behind a letter signed by 68 rabbis attacking Labour anti-Semitism.
Rabbi Janner-Klausner appeared on ITV news saying: “It’s a lie, it’s ridiculous and it shows evidence of conspiracy theories. One of the senior members of the Labour Party, of the Labour governing body, making this accusation proves the point how terrible the institutionalised anti-Semitism is”.
