JLC elects new trustees, Louise Jacobs, Laura Marks OBE and Keith Black

At its AGM last night, the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) confirmed the appointment of three new trustees. Those elected were Louise Jacobs, Chair of UJIA and Laura Marks OBE, Founder and Chair of Mitzvah Day. The Council also approved the appointment of Keith Black, Chairman and Chief Executive of the Regatta Group and a trustee of CST.

The election of Louise Jacobs and Laura Marks means that, for the first time, the JLC Board of Trustees will be gender balanced.

The JLC Board of Trustees continues to reflect its broad range of members. Louise, Laura and Keith bring a wealth of communal experience and expertise, which will enable the JLC to better act in the interest of the entire community.

The JLC deeply appreciates the time and dedication shown by Edward Misrahi and Bill Benjamin, who have now stood down from the JLC Board of Trustees.

 Jonathan Goldstein, Chair, Jewish Leadership Council said:

“I am delighted to welcome Louise, Laura and Keith to the JLC Board of Trustees. Each of them brings unique passion, energy and commitment to the table and I look forward to working with them on the behalf of our entire membership and our community. Significantly, this will also be the first time since its inception that the JLC’s board will have an equal number of women and men and I am proud the JLC can lead by example.”
