The Jewish Labour Movement’s Rebecca Filer tweeted in response to the video that “Rosh Hashanah is not about climate change, the bee population or the Green Industrial Revolution.”

British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has come under fire for his controversial Rosh Hashana video that he shared on his Twitter account.
In the video, which can be viewed below, Corbyn is seen near a stand of apples and honey together with Rob Abrams and Labour councillor Sue Lukes to promote his party’s “Green Industrial Revolution” program.
Rob Abrams is an anti-Zionist activist infamously known for leading a Kaddish (Jewish memorial) ceremony for Hamas terrorists who died last year in a clash with IDF troops.
Lukes is also no stranger to anti-Semitism. For example, as noted by the Jewish Chronicle, she had written an article to “honor” Malia Bouattia, former head of the National Union of Students of the United Kingdom who described the University of Birmingham as a “Zionist outpost.”
The video sparked major backlash on social media.
