The old (and new) boys' club

November 24, 2016 22:57

The Jewish Leadership Council is full of itself, having elected its new trustees this week. Drumroll, please, for "Bicom chairman Poju Zabludowicz, Masorti co-chair Bill Benjamin – whose organisation only joined the JLC recently – and Stephen Lewis and James Libson, who jointly represent the New Leadership Network, a group fostered by the JLC to groom future leaders.
"They are joined by previous JLC executive members Vivian Wineman (Board of Deputies), Gerald Ronson (Community Security Trust), Mick Davis (UJIA), Nigel Layton (World Jewish Relief) and Simon Hochhauser (United Synagogue)".
Wow. I hope you're all as excited as I am about this news. Notice anything, er, odd about this list? No?
WHAT ABOUT THE FACT THAT HALF THE POPULATION ISN'T REPRESENTED?
If there are any women on this council, we are yet to be told. Personally, I'd feel a great deal happier about the JLC if it were a lot more representative of this community.
