We congratulate Masada College Alumnus (2009) David Ossip on his recent election as the President of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies. David is one of the youngest Presidents in the Board’s 77-year history. “I am incredibly proud and honoured to be elected to such an important role in our community. I acknowledge the outstanding work of my predecessors in leading the NSW Jewish community and ensuring it is the vibrant, safe and strong community that it is today,” said David.
David has served as the organisation’s Vice President since 2018 and is a member of the Committee of Management of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and a Director of the Council for Jewish Community Security. David also previously chaired the Board’s Public Affairs Committee.
In 2012, David was elected to Ku-Ring-Gai Council at the age of 20 and served as Deputy Mayor from 2015-2017. At the time of his election, David was one of the youngest elected officials in the country.
The Board’s CEO, Darren Bark, also a Masada College Alumnus (2004), welcomed David into the role. “I welcome David’s election as President and can’t wait to continue delivering outcomes for our constituents and our community under his capable leadership.”
Yair Miller OAM, Immediate Past President of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies said, “I’ve worked with David for more than a decade. He brings a significant intellect and deep passion for the community to the role and I’m confident that he will be a wonderful leader of our community”.
