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.
