Jewish Care has announced Daniel Carmel-Brown will be its new chief executive.

He has held a number of positions at the charity since joining in 2008 – including his current role as director of fundraising and marketing.

Carmel-Brown, 42, said: “I’m delighted and honoured. I look forward to working with the president, honorary presidents, chairman, board of trustees and the thousands of dedicated colleagues, volunteers and supporters of this exceptional organisation to ensure we can continue to meet the growing and changing social care needs of the community”.

Charity president Lord Levy, said: “I’ve worked closely with Daniel over the last decade. He’s a natural leader, a strategic thinker, an excellent communicator and has a solid grasp and understanding of the organisation and the current challenges. I am thrilled the trustees have appointed him and have every confidence he will build on the strong foundations that his predecessor Simon Morris has worked so hard to achieve.”

Carmel-Brown, who was selected ahead of eight other candidates, takes up his new position on 1 July, succeeding Morris, who held the role for 15 years.

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
