THE JEWISH Leadership Council faces the possibility of a contested election to find a successor to Sir Mick Davis as chairman.
Jonathan Goldstein, chairman of the JLC’s education division, Partnerships for Jewish Schools, confirmed his candidacy when nominations closed on Wednesday.
The second nominee is understood to be Stephen Pack but he has yet to say whether he will stand. He is due to step down as United Synagogue president in July after serving for six years.
In addition, six nominations have been received for the two vacant posts on the organisation’s trustee board.
Mr Goldstein said: “Sir Mick Davis has been a passionate and thoughtful leader of our community. I would like to build on his successes and I look forward to sharing my ideas with the JLC membership at the hustings later this month.”
The hustings is seen as a move towards greater democracy.
Mr Goldstein played a key role in the JLC-backed redevelopment of the King Solomon High/Ilford Jewish Primary schools campus.
Sir Mick announced last month he would be bowing out in May after eight years in the post.
