The Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council have agreed to set up a joint liaison committee to improve co-operation.
It will comprise three members each from the Board and JLC. The Board's representatives will be chosen from its executive and elected by deputies.
The Board's international division has also instigated a new "rapid response" group to co-ordinate reaction to events in Israel and a working group on European antisemitism. The Israel group will be chaired by Danny Handler, the European antisemitism group by David Safir.
