Board of Deputies Seeks Coordination with Other Jewish Groups

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The Board of Deputies of British Jews reaffirmed its willingness yesterday to enter into an arrangement for coordination of activities in the field of foreign affairs with other major Jewish organizations in Britain, provided the position of the Board as the elected representative body of British Jewry was given its proper weight.

The Board, in a statement, said it was willing to enter into such an arrangement with the Anglo-Jewish Association, British Section of the World Jewish Congress, Agudas Israel World Organization and World Union for Progressive Judaism.

AJA president R.N. Carvalho, at a meeting of the AJA, spoke of his organization’s “willingness to cooperate honorably” with the Board and other organizations “in all work designed to benefit Jews anywhere.” Negotiations for such cooperation broke down earlier this year and, despite these statements, observers here do not expect early resumption of these negotiations.
