Liberal Judaism officer honoured by Jewish News
Robin Moss, the Liberal Judaism officer with responsibility for youth and education, has been named one of the most influential young Jews in the country.
He was ranked 16th in The Jewish News’ ‘40 Under 40’ countdown, which was complied in association with the Jewish Leadership Council.
Robin, 28, who is head of Israel engagement at UJIA, was praised by the paper as the “community’s most erudite and effective Israel educator”.
The Jewish News added: “Whether teaching about Zionist education paradigms at a masters level or speaking with youth movement madrichim on Welsh campsites, Robin infuses discussion on Israel with nuance and a multiplicity of narratives, and offers the cutting-edge education that young Jews need when the pro-Israel/pro-Palestine binary has become so obsolete.”
Robin’s success follows three young Liberal Jews - Gabriel Webber, Abigail Jacobi and Miriam Steiner – being ranked highly in the newspaper’s ’25 Under 25’ list.
