A poster at the United Nations Headquarters in New York CityNew YorkUnited States, showing the Millennium Development Goals The United Nations Millennium Development Goal 2 was to achieve universal primary education by the yearby which time their aim was to ensure that all children everywhere, regardless of race or gender, will be able to complete primary schooling.

Only the second woman elected to lead the main representative body of British Jews in its year history, she has already been thrust into a series of controversies. Get The Times of Israel's Daily Edition by email and never miss our top stories Free Sign Up While attempting to wrestle with the ongoing row over anti-Semitism in the main opposition party, the Board itself has come under fire over its handling of allegations of Islamophobia against one of its deputies.
But after serving three years as Board vice-president with responsibility for tackling anti-Semitism and interfaith relations, van der Zyl seems unfazed by these challenges.
Already, however, Labour seems to be falling well short of these demands. Its actions only dilute the definition and further erode the existing lack of confidence that British Jews have in their sincerity to tackle anti-Semitism within the Labour movement. Nonetheless, van der Zyl offers an olive branch.
At her first meeting as president of the Board, van der Zyl struck out at some of the criticism leveled at a small group of left-wing Jews who gathered outside Parliament to say the Kaddish mourning prayer for Palestinians killed in the Gaza border protests. She believes it is important that any discussion about the experience of Jewish students at UK universities is a balanced one.
She wants to see more opportunities for people in Britain to learn about and discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its complexities. Van der Zyl speaks proudly of the Invest in Peace project the Board runs in partnership with the Christian group Churches Together in Britain and Ireland which seeks to support Israeli-Palestinian peace-building.
As vice president, interfaith relations was part of her portfolio and she built a strong reputation, criss-crossing the country to meet with Muslim leaders.
She built alliances on issues such as tackling hate crime and defending faith schools and religious freedom. BoDPres Marie van der Zyl is now thanking Muslim brothers and sisters for their solidarity, and pledging that we will always be an ally against anti-muslim hate.
The fight against racism and prejudice is personal to van der Zyl.
