We are saddened to formally announce the resignation of Paul Charney as Chairman of the Zionist Federation.

We thank him deeply for his dedication in developing the ZF. In addition we should also like to thank Jonathan Turner for his contributions following his resignation as President last month as he is making Aliyah. In addition a number of other members of the Hanhalah have indicated that they wish to step down and we thank them for their service.

Israel and the Jewish Communities in the British Isles and Ireland are clearly facing many challenges and we at the ZF are determined to maintain our support for Israel in the face of ever increasing biased and dishonest reporting. We will be working hard over the next few months to work on strategies to deal with these issues, with a view to a more detailed announcement after the summer.

Richard P Woolf – Acting Chair

Robert Festenstein – Acting Vice-chair
