Avi Gabbay, chairman of Israel's Labor Party, sent a letter to Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the UK's Labour Party, announcing a suspension of ties between the Israeli Labor Party and Corbyn's office amid allegations Corbyn allowed for antisemitism in his party.
There was no immediate response from Mr Corbyn's office to the news.
"Should this suspension change, you will be updated accordingly", Gabbay wrote Corbyn.
"It is my responsibility to acknowledge the hostility you have shown to the Jewish community and the anti-Semitic statements and actions you have allowed as leader of the Labour party United Kingdom", a letter written by Chairman Avi Gabbay to Corbyn reads.
British Labour and Israeli Labor are sister parties and as Gabbay explains in his letter "have a long history of friendship", citing positive past relations with Prime Minister's Harold Wilson, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.
The Labour Party, on Sunday joined Action Democratic Party (ADP) in Lagos.
Corbyn has admitted there are "pockets of anti-Semitism" in the party, but a date has yet to be set for a planned meeting with the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) and the Board of Deputies of British Jews to discuss the issue.
Reacting to the suspension, Jennifer Gerber, director of Labour Friends of Israel, said: "We fully understand why the Israeli Labour party has made a decision to suspend relations with Jeremy Corbyn".
"He has failed to respond to their repeated offers of dialogue, including invitations to host him at Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust Museum".
The British Campaign Against Antisemitism denounced Corbyn to the Labour Party in a comprehensive disciplinary complaint that accuses Corbyn of bringing his party into disrepute for dismissing antisemitism and flags his membership in several social media groups used as platforms for antisemitic posts. "LFI's relationship with the Israeli Labour party remains unaffected and we will continue our close cooperation".
The letter comes two weeks after Jewish groups held a demonstration outside Parliament to protest against Corbyn's perceived lack of action in tackling anti-Semitism among some Labour supporters. "Clearly this proves that the Jewish Labour Movement's work is more important than ever, and we're not going anywhere".
Last week, Mr Corbyn criticised the shooting of Palestinians during protests on the Gaza border.
The party said it could not maintain relations with Corbyn, citing his perceived failure to tackle alleged anti-Semitism within the Labour Party.
