Rabbi Daniel Lehmann was named president of The Hebrew College in Boston.
The founding headmaster of Gann Academy-The New Jewish High School of Greater Boston, Lehmann will assume the post at the 87-year-old college in July, the Boston Globe reported. He has been working as a consultant to Jewish day schools in Connecticut and Montreal.
Lehmann will succeed David Gordis, who has served as the president since 1993.
“Rabbi Lehmann has a distinguished track record, in Boston and nationally, as a visionary Jewish leader and educator, seasoned administrator and successful fund-raiser,” said the chairman of the school’s board of trustees, Ted Cutler.
