Yom Kippur: Hessen-SPD posts a photo of a mosque for a Jewish holiday

The Hessian SPD illustrated a contribution to the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur with a mosque and apologized for the mistake after deleting it. For the highest Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur, the party and faction wished all Jews on Facebook and Instagram "Gmar Chatima tova" (in English: "May your inscription (in the book of life) be completed well").

In addition, the SPD posted a photo of the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The "Bild-Zeitung" and the Hessischer Rundfunk had previously reported online about the incident.

Despite the examination by several employees, nobody noticed that the photo did not show a synagogue but one of the largest Islamic buildings, a spokesman for the Social Democrats said on Wednesday in Wiesbaden. After the SPD became aware of the error through critical comments on the post, the post was deleted from the channels. This was followed by an apology via the Twitter account. "Something stupid underground happened to us, for which we are rightly criticized," says the post on the joint account of the party and parliamentary group.
