It was our pleasure to co-host with the Board of Deputies our fourth Councillor Seminar on Sunday 24th June. This time we were in Birmingham, welcoming councillors from all over the Midlands. We hold these seminars regionally in order to bring together councillors from across the political spectrum to discuss key Jewish community issues. The seminar consists of panels on antisemitism, social care, education and Israel. Last weekend, almost 50 councillors attended from 37 different boroughs to learn about the Jewish community.
The local community in Birmingham welcomed us into their synagogue hall where they spoke about some of the unique challenges of being a smaller community.
The JLC’s North East regional manager Miki Vyse chaired the education panel.
