Board of Deputies president Vivian Wineman has offered to meet signatories of a petition calling on the Board to declare support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
More than 1,000 people signed an online letter after Deputies last month rejected a resolution in support of two states which had been proposed by its executive.
The petition was organised by Hannah Weisfeld, who is planning the launch of a new Israel campaign group inspired by the American J Street.
Ms Weisfeld said the signatories included many "professional and lay leaders of our community".
