A number of new people including the founder of Travelex have joined the board of the Jewish Community Centre for London (JCC) following its ambitious announcement that it has secured a key location on the Finchley Road in north west London.
The JCC will be London's first purpose built centre aimed to attract Jews from all backgrounds and ages and is modelled on similar projects in the United States which house educational, social and leisure facilities.
Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of financial company Travelex, Jennifer Moses, chief executive of think-tank CentreForum and entrepreneur Michael Zur-Szpiro join the existing board of the JCC which includes Dame Vivien Duffield, Sir Trevor Chinn and publisher Andrew Franklin.
"I think this is an incredibly exciting project. Already, through its excellent events, the JCC is providing an innovative meeting place for Londons Jewish community," said Dorfman. "The new building will provide a unique space in which the whole of the community will be able to come together and experience Judaism in all its wide variety.
