headEntries have been flooding in for the Jewish News 40 Under 40 initiative to identify the future leaders of Anglo-Jewry.

The campaign, last run in 2010 by leading PR consultant Ben Rich, seeks to identify those poised to occupy senior roles in communal organisations and those shaping or set to shape the direction of the community for years to come.

Readers have until 15 January to nominate individuals before our 12-strong panel spanning the religious and political spectrum decide on the final 40 and rank them.

The initiative is supported by the Jewish Leadership Council and the winner will be unveiled in our Pesach issue.Unknown

Panel chair Andrew Gilbert said: “Graduates of youth movements, UJS, Limmud, Adam Science and now Gamechangers continue to go on to impact on our community in a myriad of different ways.

“Unlike North American communities, we have developed an incredible pathway of leadership. Our final list will be a snapshot of today’s young leadership. “Many may have been leaders in youth movements or in Jewish societies on campus.”

For the first time, we will also be publishing a Twenty-five Under 25 list to identify students or recent graduates.

The panel will be looking for various forms of impact including formative – already taken up leadership roles; transformative – those creating new aspects of the community; depth – increasingly offerings of Anglo-Jewry through intellectual development.
