The chief rabbi has said Labour will be “on the wrong side” of the fight against racism unless it toughens up its anti-Semitism code of conduct.
Ephraim Mirvis said Labour’s anti-Semitism definition sent “an unprecedented message of contempt to the Jewish community”.
Labour has defended its new code as the most “comprehensive” of any party.
However, Labour MPs have overwhelmingly backed calls to broaden their party’s definition of anti-Semitism.
The MPs backed a motion to adopt in full the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) working definition of anti-Semitism.
