British Jews congratulate Theresa May
The Board of Deputies, the largest organization of British Jews, congratulates Theresa May after the path is cleared for her to become prime minister.
“We congratulate Theresa May in anticipation of her becoming Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister, Board of Deputies Chief Executive Gillian Merron says in a statement. “She has been a great friend of the community and, during her time as Home Secretary, the Board of Deputies has had a very positive and close relationship with her.
“We look forward to that relationship continuing as she moves in to 10 Downing Street and we wish her every success in her new role at this challenging time for our country.”
