Dark horse for deputies

Expect an unfamiliar face to be the Board of Deputies’ next chief executive since several communal figures mooted as possibles are thought to have ruled themselves out for the £100,000-a-year post. Some might wonder why the Board seeks a new chief if merger with the Jewish Leadership Council is on the way but apparently a professional head is felt necessary to fight its corner in negotiations with the JLC.
