Meanwhile, on Twitter...

COUNTDOWN presenter Rachel Riley (@RachelRileyRR) pledged her support to the Jewish Telegraph’s #OpeningDoors campaign on Twitter.

She wrote: “This is lovely. My Mum already hosts @contact_teas. Everyone involved gets so much out of them.

“Well done @JewishTelegraph for your #OpeningDoors initiative, I hope it receives a lot of support.”

And Reform Judaism (@ReformMovement) also tweeted its support, writing: “Reform congregations have led the way in tackling #loneliness through our Communities that Care initiative, working together with @FED_Manchester.

“It is fantastic to see this important issue being addressed with #OpeningDoors.”

Outspoken Labour MP Wes Streeting (@wesstreeting) reflected on the social media activities of his boss — Jeremy Corbyn — who decided to share gardening tips with American politician Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez.

He wrote: “The Labour Party’s problem with antisemitism isn’t just about process. It’s about culture and leadership.

“The person who called two Jewish women MPs ‘s***-stirring c**-buckets in the pay of Israel’ is still a Labour member.

“Our leader responded yesterday with gardening tips.”

Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson (@tom_watson) admitted to watching a certain Israeli Netflix show, when asked about the phenomenon that is BBC’s Fleabag.

He wrote: “I’ve not seen it. Still on Shtisel.”
