Jewish Leadership Council

The Jewish Leadership Council, formed in 2003, (as the Jewish Community Leadership Council) is Chaired by the president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Henry Grunwald QC. The JLC brings together the most senior lay leaders of the major institutions in each sector of UK Jewish life. Membership includes the Chairs and Presidents of synagogue movements, leaders of the main charities, welfare organisations and representative bodies as well as a number of Jewish VIPs and individual leaders such as The Lord (Michael) Levy, Sir Ronald Cohen, Dame Ruth Deech and former Board president and veteran politician Lord Janner. Jeremy Newmark (former spokesperson for the Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks) was appointed as Chief Executive of the JLC in January 2006.

In July 2008 the Council published a major report on the future of Jewish schooling in the UK. []
