The JLC is pleased to announce David Davidi-Brown as the new Director of Community Strategy.

In this newly created position, David will be responsible for leading the JLC’s projects addressing the long term strategic needs of the Jewish community.

The work of the department of Community Strategy is kindly supported by the Genesis Philanthropy Group.

David will oversee the implementation of the recommendations from the JLC’s Elderly Care Commission, and work with the Community Wellbeing Task Force on the pilot programme to support children and young people’s mental health. He will work closely with JLC members in helping to ensure the sustainability of the Jewish Charitable sector. David will also lead on other strategic projects looking at the UK Jewish community’s long term needs.

David was previously the CEO of the Union of Jewish Students, a role he held until earlier this year. He has also had experience working at UJIA and JHub, and has volunteered for a number of other charities.

David will begin working at the JLC on the 2nd July 2019.

“We are delighted to welcome David to the team and are excited that we have attracted a professional of his calibre to the role. David brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience within the community, and is certain to add a great deal of value to the work of the JLC.”

David Davidi-Brown said:

“I am thrilled to be joining the wonderful team at the JLC and look forward to making my contribution to UK Jewry. I am eager to listen and learn as, together, we strengthen and sustain work engaging and supporting younger and older members of our community; expand the vital work promoting positive mental health and wellbeing; and explore the opportunities arising from our values driven desire to cooperate and collaborate.”
