The Board of Deputies decided, following the racist murder of George Floyd in mid-2020, to investigate whether black members of the Jewish Community felt instances of marginalisation and discrimination. As a result, the Commission for Racial Inclusivity in the Jewish Community was born with Stephen Bush invited to lead the Commission.
