Following recent discussion about Omar Chowdhury's online comments made to a Jewish student, JSoc held a vote to establish their views on the incoming BME Network Chair's position.
The vote held yesterday, 6 May, aimed to establish JSoc's views as a society representing Jewish students at Bristol.
The majority of their members voted to call for Chowdhury to be removed from his position as BME Network Chair.
In a statement, JSoc said: 'In our role as the representative organisation of Jewish students at Bristol, we are pleased to have held a vote to determine our stance on such a vital issue.
'The result of the vote is that a majority of our membership has expressed their lack of confidence in Omar Chowdhury to continue in his role and we therefore call for his removal.'
They added: 'We will now represent this position fully to the SU and other relevant institutions.'
Omar Chowdhury has already received a formal warning from the SU since the online comments in question emerged.
Last week, new group Bristol Students Against Antisemitism launched a change.org petition, calling for Chowdhury's removal.
