Wanted: Jewish leaders with Jewish knowledge

By Simon Rocker

Jewish leaders are committed, well-educated and professionally successful - but lack Jewish knowledge, according to a survey of more than 250 Jewish opinion-formers in Europe. Their management skills and financial acumen were more likely to be rated weak rather than strong. Out of eight attributes, their commitment and general education came top, while Jewish knowledge was well down at the bottom. For more about the poll, and views on Israel and antisemitism, see this coming Friday's JC.
