Outgoing Zionist Federation chairman Andrew Balcombe used his valedictory speech to call for a rationalisation of organisations supporting Israel.
Addressing the ZF's biennial conference in north-west London on Sunday, Mr Balcombe also bemoaned "the weakest pro-Israel leadership the community has had in many years.
"Israel is not the mainstream issue for the Jewish leadership, nor the Board of Deputies. All I see is apologies."
