The Jewish Leadership Council

About Us

About us

The JLC connects and coordinates the Jewish charitable sector, strengthens and supports leadership across our community, and magnifies and amplifies the collective voice of our member organisations. The Council is comprised of the Chairs or Presidents of those organisations, and the Council elects a Board of Trustees for a three-year term. The JLC represents only its members – the organisations that have chosen to join the council. This range of organisations includes synagogues, care organisations, education charities, regional Representative Councils and the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Our structure and governance pages explain how the JLC is structured and who sits on the different committees.
