Mr. J. M. Rich Secretary of Jewish Board of Deputies and Joint Foreign Committee Resigns to Become E

Mr. O. E. d’Avigdor Goldsmid, the President of the Board of Jewish Deputies and Joint President of the Joint Foreign Committee, paid a tribute at to-day’s meeting of the Board to Mr. J. M. Rich, the Secretary, who has resigned the Secretaryship of these two bodies on accepting the editorship of the “Jewish Chronicle”.

I am undertaking vast communal responsibility, Mr. Rich said in reply, and if I am in any way equal to those responsibilities, it will be due to the members of the Board who have trained me.

A Sub-Committee, consisting of Mr. d’Avigdor Goldsmid, the President, Major Isidore Salmon, M.P., Mr. Lionel Cohen, K.C., Dr. M. Epstein, and Mr. B. S. Straus, and Mr. Leonard G. Montefiore as Joint President of the Joint Foreign Committee, has been appointed to examine applications for the vacancy and to recommend a candidate to the Board.
