JLC Chair Jonathan Goldstein held a town hall with members of the Manchester Jewish community last night. The event, held at King David High School, was part of a series of events the JLC Chair is holding around the country to engage with members of British Jewry.
The meeting was attended by representatives of JLC member organisations, activists, numerous local councilors from Bury, Salford, Manchester and Trafford, along with members of the Jewish Labour Movement.
The failure of the Labour Party to tackle left-wing antisemitism dominated the discussion.
Jonathan Goldstein said:
“I’m grateful for the hospitality of Manchester Jewry during my visit and for the opportunity to discuss a range of issues, including the grave situation of the Labour Party with members of the community and with the Manchester Jewish Representative Council. We had an open and robust conversation about the road ahead. Most importantly, I am heartened by how united we stand as Jews across the country and meet the challenges we face in the future”.
