Jeremy Corbyn marked Chanukah in his constituency over the weekend, attending Islington Chabad’s annual menorah lighting ceremony.
Taking place on Islington Green, the event on Sunday night saw around 250 revellers come together to celebrate the festival of light.
The Labour leader was pictured eating jam doughnuts, taking selfies, and chatting to local rabbi Mendy Korer at the free event which is supported by Islington Council. He also addressed crowds, wishing them a happy Chanukah.
Guests were entertained with music from The London Klezmer Quartet, arts & crafts by the Jewish Museum London, face painting and storytelling, while sampling delicious free Chanukah food, such as doughnuts and latkes.
This year, Chabad Islington also managed to raise just under £4,000 pounds with a charity fundraiser, in which brave attendees walked across burning coals.
