Board of Deputies votes in favour of Oxfam project

    A controversial joint anti-hunger project between the Board of Deputies and Oxfam will go ahead after deputies voted in favour of the scheme.

    The Grow/Tatzmiach programme will bring Jewish campaigners together with experts from the NGO to tackle injustices in the international food system.

    Deputies voted by 113 to 65 in favour of the project at a plenary meeting in central London on Sunday.

    Opposition at the meeting was led by deputies from leading United Synagogue congregations including Hampstead Garden Suburb, Stanmore and Belmont.

    Supporting the project, senior vice-president Laura Marks said it was important for the Board to "defend Israel from within [the wider community], rather than from the sidelines".
