Introducing this year’s co-chairs:

Jocelyn Rome and Ryan Davis 

We are excited to be co-chairs of Limmud JHB 2020.  Limmud is a great Jewish space where we can all explore, learn, have fun and build a community;  where we connect with others. Whether you like hummus, chrain, biltong or tofu; are energised by text study, culture, social justice or Israel – Limmud has something for you! 

We can’t wait to share this incredible journey with you.  Join us as we build Limmud JHB 2020, taking us all one step further on our Jewish journey  


Ryan recently graduated with a certificate in Social Impact Strategy from the University of Pennsylvania and works as a People Development Consultant and Coach. He was a madrich for many years in Bnei Akiva and also worked in a number of Jewish communal organisations. Apart from being a passionate Limmud volunteer for many years, Ryan has also volunteered in various other Jewish non-profit organisations, including the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre, Nahum Goldmann Fellowship and the Mensch Network. Earlier this year, he proudly presented his South African Jewish story at the AJC Global Forum in Washington.  Ryan specialises in designing and facilitating professional development programmes in the public and private sectors (and in the education space), and is excited to bring these skills and experience to Limmud as JHB co-chair for 2020.  


Jocelyn has been a researcher and consultant in adult education, development and entrepreneurship for over two decades. A long-time Limmud supporter and attendee, 2020 is her third year of active involvement in the organisation of the conference, having co-chaired Programming for Limmud JHB in 2019. A committed and knowledgeable fan of rugby, soccer and cricket, she is excited to be co-chair of Limmud in Jo’burg, a city she loves for its grittiness, opportunity and Jacaranda trees. She believes Limmud is a special space that allows people to move beyond the confines of their self-identity in order to learn with and from others.
