We welcome Simon Jackson to the JLC Council who has recently succeeded Hilton Lorie as President of the Leeds Jewish Representative Council. Simon studied law at the University of Leeds and is a partner and Head of Commercial Property at Shulman’s LLP.
I am delighted on behalf of the Leeds Jewish Representative Council to represent the whole of the Leeds community at the JLC. Whilst Leeds is a most vibrant regional community and is particularly innovative in many of the projects undertaken (such as the Website, the Leeds Jewish Future project and its young lay leadership programme) we realise that we need a strong, effective and powerful representation at a national level. The JLC undertakes this. We see the fruits of that activity and we hope that we can not only gain from the resources and opportunities that the JLC offers but feedback our ideas and successes for the benefit of all.
