The Board of Deputies of British Jews launched a think tank to determine the community’s long-range strategy.
The Community Policy Research Group is designed to carry out research and explore policy options for British Jewry in the fields of education, welfare and community development.
Alexander Goldberg of the Board of Deputies will serve as the group’s director, with senior professionals from key Jewish organizations and a number of prominent members of British academia comprising the supervisory board.
“We are encouraged – and honored – that key organizations have been keen to join this effort,” Goldberg said. “It is precisely this kind of inclusive participation that will enable us to conduct research that is based on the real needs of British Jewry.”
Discussions are under way for partnering with other communities.
