CST people recognised in New Years Honours list

31 Dec 2011 by CST

CST is proud that two key figures involved with the charity since its inception have been recognised in the New Years Honours list.

CST's Chairman, Gerald Ronson, has been awarded a CBE for his philanthropic work inside and outside the Jewish community. Gerald has been a central figure in Jewish defence and anti-racism since the 1960s. He was the driving force behind CST's creation in 1994 and remains our Chairman to this day.

CST's Director of Government and International Affairs, Mike Whine, has been awarded an MBE for services to community cohesion. Mike has worked for CST since its creation and, like Gerald, has been involved in efforts to combat antisemitism and racism in this country for decades. He is also the Defence Director of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, a position he has held for many years.

To both Gerald and Mike, we say: Mazeltov!

“Since 2003, CST has been a stalwart supporter of ODIHR in its efforts to effectively monitor antisemitic hate crime in the OSCE Region. With its rigorous methodology and innovative partnerships with the British police, it is viewed by many as representing the gold standard for NGO responses to all forms of hate crime. I wish CST all success in its exciting new phase of work.”
