Rabbi David Singer has served as National Director of Limmud North America since 2019. 

A serial entrepreneur and innovator, David previously was the Executive Director of UC San Diego Hillel, where he oversaw a period of significant growth in programs and brought to positive conclusion a nearly 20-year legal battle to build a permanent facility near the university. Earlier, David was the Founding Rabbi and Director of Makom, a young spiritual community recognized by Slingshot 14-15 as one of the most innovative Jewish organizations in North America. 

Named by The Jewish Daily Forward as one of America’s Most Inspiring Rabbis, David is a graduate of Clal’s Clergy Leadership Incubator and Rabbis Without Borders. David is married to Danielle Rugoff, with whom he raises a french bulldog, Jackson.
