Leading Jewish children's charity JCD has made one of its founders a life president as well as appointing a number of new members to its national council.
Jerusalem-based Arieh Handler was appointed life president and joins current life president June Jacobs.
Other appointments made at JCD's annual general meeting include Rabbi Jeremy Gordon of St Albans Masorti Synagogue who will be the honorary patron of the Masorti movement and Dr Simon Nadel, consultant in paediatric intensive care at St Marys Hospital in London.
Rabbi Gordons appointment shows that all strands of Jewish religious life Orthodox, the Spanish and Portuguese community, Masorti, Liberal and Reform are represented on the JCD board," said JCD executive director Daniel Burger. "In Dr Nadel we now have someone whose expertise will enable us to qualify the many grant applications we receive from hospitals and medical organisations."
