New Executive Director for SACRED

The Board of SACRED is thrilled to announce our new Executive Director, James Lomberg, who will take over from Janine Shamos in January 2014.  The Executive looks forward to the growth of SACRED, an organisation which aims to promote progressive values in the Jewish community.

James has degrees in History and Law which have helped him to refine his communication skills, research ability and understanding of the world. He is an effective, passionate  and professional worker, with a strong sense of justice and a deep commitment to Progressive Judaism.

A word from James:

“I am convinced that progressive Judaism, with its unique mixture of ancient tradition and modern life, has a very valuable contribution to make to South Africa. Four thousand years of accumulated wisdom should not be kept to ourselves but shared with our fellow citizens.”

I look forward to connecting with you all. If you’d like to get involved or know more, please email me on
