New team starts work on schools

October 10, 2008

A new team has been selected to put into action the recommendations of the Jewish Leadership Council's Commission on Jewish Schools.

Leading communal figures and experts in a variety of areas have been assembled by Leo Noé, the JLC member in charge.

The first tasks are the Redbridge Community Change project, a full investigation into the provision for special-educational-needs children, and the implications of strictly Orthodox community schools becoming voluntary-aided.

Businessman David Ereira will chair special education; Jonathan Goldstein will head the Redbridge group. Rabbi Jonathan Guttenberg from Manchester will be liaise with the strictly Orthodox community.
