Your bet for Chief Rabbi?

    Bookies have begun taking bets on the successor to Lord Sacks as Chief Rabbi.

    According to Paddy Power, Rabbi Harvey Belovski, the Oxford and Gateshead-educated spiritual leader of Golders Green United Synagogue is 6/4 favourite.

    He is followed by Rabbi Shaul Robinson (ex-Barnet now at New York's Lincoln Square Synagogue) at 13/8, and Rabbis Naftali Brawer (Borehamwood and Elstree United) and Yitzchak Shochet (Mill Hill United) at 5/1.

    But you can always take a punt on Lord Sugar 250/1 or Vanessa Feltz, David Miliband and Sacha Baron Cohen (below), each of whom 500/1.

    Mind you, the Apprentice master does not rate his chances. "Don't bet on that," he tweeted - although if he did make the Chiefdom, he promised the first thing he would do is circumcise TV presenter Piers Morgan.
