To say Jews are about to leave the country is irresponsible

13 September, 2018

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn

An open letter from Leading Orthodox Jewish community leaders in the UK

• WE were shocked to learn about those that are claiming in the media that the Jews of Britain are outraged towards the Labour Party’s respected leader Jeremy Corbyn.

They have spread rumours that the Jewish population are considering leaving the country for fear he becomes prime minister. We therefore feel necessary to clarify that we have no connection whatsoever with these irresponsible remarks.

Jews are faithful to God and his Torah and seek the peace of the country they reside in and respect their leaders and heaven forbid will not attack their political leaders.

As we have been instructed by our sages o.b.m, and as is quoted in the book of Jeremiah (29, 7) “seek the peace of the town I have exiled you there, and pray for her sake to god for with her peace you will have peace”.

In the merit we will endure the burden of exile and continue the ways of modesty here, like the thousands of years of our exile in all generations, we shall be accredited to be saved from all calamities and be blessed with a kesivoh vechasimoh tovuh.
