Human rights expert David Hoffman has been tapped to take over as chair Limmud by the end of the year, the international Jewish educational initiative announced on Monday.

Hoffman, described by the organization as a commercial barrister, human rights law author and occasional rock musician, will take over from incumbent Kevin Sefton. Limmud organizes non-denominational educational and cultural conferences around the world.

“David will lead Limmud to new heights,” said incumbent Chair Kevin Sefton. “This transition is happening as we head into our milestone 35th Limmud Conference, in a brand new location to accommodate record-high registration. Limmud is thriving internationally, with over 80 Limmud communities in 43 countries. David brings years of Limmud experience and success to this role.”

“The Jewish world recognizes Limmud as a leader in engaging Jews across generations, affiliations - and non-affiliation - and international borders,” said Chair Elect Hoffman. “My goal is to build upon and expand Limmud’s unique strengths in training young leaders, convening Jews of all stripes, and fostering discussion and debate. We will continue to spread Limmud’s model of celebrating all things Jewish here in the UK and wherever there are Jews, inspiring them to move forward in their Jewish journeys.
