Download PDF for this date

Prof. Selig Brodetsky, member of the Jewish Agency Executive and a noted mathematician, will become the next president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews without a contest, it was learned today. The deadline for nominations expired last night with no other nominations for the post filed. Prof. Brodetsky, who is head of the Jewish Agency’s political department in London, will succeed Neville Laski who resigned for “professional reasons” after holding the presidency since 1933.
