Labour Friends of Israel has appointed a new director to oversee the parliamentary lobby group's work.
Jennifer Gerber replaces former director Luciana Berger, who was elected as an MP for the Liverpool Wavertree constituency in May.
Ms Gerber, from Finchley, north London, is a former director of Progress, a New Labour pressure group promoting radical and progressive politics.
She edited its magazine, for which she has written articles on Israel and antisemitism.
