Five new organisations voted onto the Board of Deputies


Board of Deputies Interim Chief Executive Michael Wegier has welcomed five new organisations to the Board of Deputies

Michael said: “We were delighted to welcome five new organisations to the Board of Deputies at a special meeting on Monday, including Gift, the Jewish Police Association, the Jewish Small Communities Network, Kisharon and Langdon. This brings the Board of Deputies up to 208 member organisations and synagogues making the organisation the key forum to discuss the issues of the day and giving us unparalleled legitimacy to speak on behalf of the community. While two organisations, JCORE and the Zionist Central Council, will be disappointed at being unable to achieve the two thirds majority set out in the Board of Deputies constitution, the result does not preclude these organisations re-applying at a later date. The demand to join our organisation and to be a part of the democratic representative organisation of Jews in the UK has never been stronger and there are plenty more applications to be considered.”
