“Reform Judaism has consistently called on the Labour Party to tackle anti-Semitism amongst its leadership and in the wider party membership. These issues relate to the core nature of Britain as a democracy, and are certainly not only a Jewish matter. What is happening is a warning that applies to all minorities.
As Rabbi Mirvis indicated, it is not our place to tell others how to vote. It would be deeply regrettable for 2019 to be remembered only for conversations about anti-Semitism, and we hope that all issues of racism and discrimination will be considered at this election. We ask that everyone engages with our precious democracy and votes with these concerns in mind.”
