One Jew has been elected a member of the Gibraltar Legislative Council which will for the first time in history begin to exercise a measure of home rule over Britain’s famed “rock” community.

The nine-member council, of which only five are elected, will include Joshua Hassan, leading member of the Jewish community. Abraham Serfaty, another Jew, was defeated in the elections. Gibraltar’s Jewish community numbers about 800 persons.
