The community’s only Labour leadership hustings is moving to a 900-seat venue after tickets sold out in under an hour.
The event will see frontrunner Sir Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Lisa Nandy and Emily Thornberry quizzed at Liberal Jewish Synagogue in an event chaired by ITV political editor Robert Peston. It is organised by Jewish News, Jewish Labour Movement and Labour Friends of Israel.
The 13 February hustings will be a key moment for the contenders to be tackled on their response to antisemitism in the party over the last four years and set out their plans to address the scourge and the upcoming report of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission. They will also face questions on a range of domestic and international topics, both of specific communal and wider national interest.
