Jewish Communities Event with the Jewish Leadership Council


On 30th March 2023 Alderman and Sheriff Alastair King DL celebrated the Jewish contribution to the City of London with the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) at the Old Bailey Grand Hall. The event was hosted by Alastair and the City of London Corporation, and kindly sponsored by Regal London.

The Jewish Leadership Council represents many Jewish organisations in the UK, including synagogues, care organisations, education charities, regional Representative Councils and has close association with the Board of Deputies of British Jews. The JLC ensures that the UK Jewish community thrives, strengthening and supporting leadership across the community.

 “It was a great pleasure to be able to host a wonderful event jointly with the Jewish Leadership Council. The contribution of the Jewish Communities to the City of London has been immense over the centuries. It was a delight to see so many remarkable people marking this contribution”.

There were nearly 300 guests, including peers, MPs, Aldermen and Councillors, Rabbis, community leaders and business people. We heard insightful speeches from the Chief Rabbi, Sir Ephraim Mirvis, the former Lord Mayor of City of London, Sir Michael Bear, Nickie Aiken MP and Jonathan Seal of Regal London.

JLC Chair, Keith Black, spoke about how the Jewish people played and continue to play a vital role in the City at all levels, he also noted how Britain’s oldest synagogue, Bevis Marks, takes pride of place in the City. It was a great pleasure to have the Rabbi of Bevis Marks, Rabbi Shalom Morris, with us on that evening.
