Confirmed in office

The Central Council’s President Charlotte Knobloch was confirmed in office in Dusseldorf on 18 November. Although she was only elected to succeed Paul Spiegel OBM in June, fresh elections were required under the Statutes because the term served by the Presidium and President had run their course. Vice-Presidents Professor Dr Salomon Korn and Dr Dieter Graumann were similarly endorsed by a unanimous vote in which only the respective candidates abstained. The Presidium of nine has one new member: Feliks Byelyenkow, Chairman of the Brandenburg Association of Jewish Communities, succeeds Albert Meyer of Berlin.
