Lala Süsskind, the head of the Jewish Community of Berlin, was elected to the Presidium of the Central Council of Jews at the meeting of the Directorate of the Central Council on 21 September 2008. The election became necessary because Feliks Byelyenkov, until recently head of the association of Jewish communities of Brandenburg, was withdrawn from the Presidium by his regional association after the elections to the executive board of this organization held on 25 June 2008.
Also at the same meeting of 21 September 2008, the Secretary General of the Central Council of Jews in Germany , Stephan J. Kramer, was re-elected until March 2015.
