Volunteers and philanthropists from the Jewish community have been recognised in the New Year’s Honours List.
With the emphasis shifting from showbiz and sporting stars to those contributing to the Big Society and working in their communities, the list presents a chance for less well-known names to receive the recognition they deserve.
Marjorie Ziff is made MBE for services to the community in Leeds.
The 81-year-old has served the city’s Jewish community for nearly 60 years alongside her husband, Arnold, who died in 2004.
