Your bet for Chief Rabbi?

By Simon Rocker, January 13, 2011

Bookies have begun taking bets on the successor to Lord Sacks as Chief Rabbi.

According to Paddy Power, Rabbi Harvey Belovski, the Oxford and Gateshead-educated spiritual leader of Golders Green United Synagogue is 6/4 favourite.

He is followed by Rabbi Shaul Robinson (ex-Barnet now at New York's Lincoln Square Synagogue) at 13/8, and Rabbis Naftali Brawer (Borehamwood and Elstree United) and Yitzchak Shochet (Mill Hill United) at 5/1.

But you can always take a punt on Lord Sugar 250/1 or Vanessa Feltz, David Miliband and Sacha Baron Cohen (below), each of whom 500/1.

Mind you, the Apprentice master does not rate his chances. "Don't bet on that," he tweeted - although if he did make the Chiefdom, he promised the first thing he would do is circumcise TV presenter Piers Morgan.
