The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

LO­CAL MP Fabian Hamil­ton led the trib­utes to Ed­ward Ziff at a party on Tues­day mark­ing his re­tire­ment as Leeds Jewish Wel­fare Board pres­i­dent.

Prais­ing Mr Ziff for his “won­der­ful work” for the wel­fare board and the wider com­mu­nity, Mr Hamil­ton told him that his “con­tri­bu­tion has been im­mense”.

Lord Sacks fea­tured in a video trib- ute, point­ing out that Mr Ziff had helped the wel­fare board “through some dif­fi­cult times, steer­ing i t through to where it is to­day”.

Mr Ziff said he left LJWB in “great shape” and en­cour­aged his suc­ces­sor, Rus­sell Man­ning, to be bold. “It’s a huge com­mit­ment look­ing af­ter peo­ple. You don’t want any ma­jor set­backs, which, thank­fully, we’ve never had.”
