Independent Mayoral Candidate and former International Development Secretary Rory Stewart today visited Golders Green and JW3 to listen to concerns of Jewish Londoners.
The pre-planned engagement that the JLC had arranged prior to his Mayoral announcement, introduced Rory to JLC member organisations including London Jewish Forum and Jami at their Golders Green Headrooom Cafe and Mitzvah Day, the Union of Jewish Students and JW3 at the Swiss Cottage Centre.
Rory also stopped passers by on Golders Green Road and in JW3 in his now trademark fashion to engage potential voters on issues they care about.
At the Headroom Cafe, Rory spoke with Jami Chief Executive Laurie Rifkind and Chair Adam Dawson about mental health issues facing the Jewish community. He also spoke with Andrew Gilbert of the London Jewish Forum about the community's priorities for London.
At JW3 Mr Stewart met with UJS President Esther Offenberg and sabbatical officer Bradley Langer. He also met with Mitzvah Day Chief Executive Georgina Bye and JW3 CEO Raymond Simonson.
The JLC will has and will continue to engage with all Mayoral candidates and political party's in the run up to the 2020 London Elections.
