With the election looming, Shadow Chancellor George Osborne thanked two of the Conservatives’ top Jewish campaigners this week for their efforts to try to “turn the Torah party to the Tory party”.
The objects of his gratitude were the party’s chief executive Andrew Feldman and fundraiser Howard Leigh, who were among a large audience at a Jewish Care breakfast addressed by Mr Osborne this week.
Mr Leigh chairs Jewish Care’s business breakfast committee. Mr Feldman’s mother Marcia volunteers at one of the charity’s centres, which Tory leader David Cameron visited last year.
