The Zionist Federation has appointed Joshua Forman as its new executive director.

Forman, who is Hasmonean High School’s director of learning for science, will take up his post in January of next year.

He has experience working for Jewish schools and in leadership roles on Israel tours.  “I am extremely excited to be taking up this position at the ZF,” he said.

He added: “For me, this opportunity to lead the organisation which was specifically named in the Balfour Declaration is an absolute honour.

“I grew up with a strong British, Jewish and Zionist identity and spent my gap year in Israel, immersed in Israeli culture, learning Ivrit and volunteering.

“The value of education is something very close to my heart and, with my passion for Zionism, I am looking forward to the challenge of drawing upon the historical standing of the ZF in order to power it into the future.”

ZF chairman Paul Charney described Forman as “highly driven, passionate and engaging and comes from a long line of halutizm living in Israel.”

“Together with his leadership roles on major Israel tours and his former career in education, Josh comes to the ZF with a heartfelt passion for Zionism, new and refreshing ideas and an immense aptitude to lead the ZF forward,” he added.
