Lawyer Eddie Isaacs is making a strong case for the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council under his presidency. "Without meaning to sound arrogant, I've got a lot to bring to the table."
Mr Isaacs, who took charge this week, is Glasgow born and bred. He has filled a variety of communal roles, which he says has prepared him for the challenges ahead, the biggest being the rep council's Community Futures Project.
This got off to a rocky start in January with a row over invitations to the preliminary meeting, an unwelcome distraction Mr Isaacs shrugs off as a misunderstanding.
