Miliband said: “It will be a great privilege to address the Board of Deputies. It is an institution which for hundreds of years has not only served Britain’s Jewish community but ensured the voice of that community is heard fairly across the United Kingdom.”
Board President Vivian Wineman said: “We’re delighted to provide an exciting platform through which members from across the community can engage with the leader of the opposition and explore the issues at the heart of the
concerns of our community. It’s also great to be partnering with the Jewish News, which has a track record for delivering top-quality grass-roots political events.”
As with the Douglas Alexander event earlier this month, Iran’s nuclear programme, the campaign to proscribe Hezbollah, the pursuit of Israeli-Palestinian peace and Labour’s support are likely to top the agenda at next month’s event.
The man hoping to become Britain’s second Jewish prime minister in 2015 is also likely to also be quizzed on faith schools, shechita and the delegitimisation of the Jewish state in the UK. Among those who have also participated in Jewish News Q&A sessions over the past three years are Nick Clegg, William Hague, Boris Johnson and the then foreign secretary, David Miliband.
