Nominations continue to pour in for Jewish News’ search for the young leaders poised to shape the future of the community.
In partnership with the Jewish Leadership Council, this newspaper last month announced our third 40 under 40 project, with a panel of expert judges set to whittle down hundreds of nominations to the final list.
This time, nominations are also being sought simultaneously for 25 Under 25 and 18 Under 18 lists.
Previous winners, such as Liberal Democrat MP Luciana Berger, have migrated to the judging panel, and will help come up with the lists, set to be announced in the spring.
Joining Berger to judge next year’s ‘40 under 40’ list will be 23 senior figures representing the length and breadth of the community, including Liberal and Reform Judaism, Union of Jewish Students, JW3, Mizrachi UK, Reshet and The Fed in Manchester, to name a few.
Chair of judges Andrew Gilbert said: “Nominations for our lists have been coming in thick and fast in recent weeks, but there are some key names from past lists who have not yet been nominated.”
