LABOUR faced gibe yesterday for illustrating a Passover summary online with a fritter of bread – a food Jewish people are banned from eating during a eremite festival.
The amicable media mistake led to uninformed claims that a celebration does not caring about a Jewish community.
Its central Twitter comment posted a design yesterday morning with a difference Happy Passover, and images of a Star of David, a crater of booze and a fritter of bread.
But officials shortly had to undo it after dozens of people beheld that risen bread is never eaten during Passover. Jews instead eat flat, unleavened bread to symbolize a fact that Israelites did not have time to concede their loaves to arise before evading slavery.
Phil Rosenberg, open affairs executive of a Board of Deputies of British Jews, wrote: “Which vital domestic celebration would embody a design of bread in their Passover message? Passover being a festival in that bread is banned to Jews. Yep, we guessed it. Labour.”
Another Twitter user pronounced it was “astonishing (but sadly unsurprising) simple eremite illiteracy”.
Others joked that a “half-baked” design showed that Labour officials were “not regulating their loaf”.
The UKLabour comment shortly deleted a offending picture and transposed it with one only featuring a Star of David.
It comes after months of allegations that anti-Semitism is prevalent in a party, call an review by a tellurian rights watchdog.
