Mitzvah Day has welcomed two new members of staff to its team.

Charlotte Agran, 24, joins as interfaith coordinator, having previously worked as the operations and public affairs administrator for the Holocaust Educational Trust.

Jacob Forman, 26, is the new Mitzvah Day project co-ordinator. His previous roles include being a team leader with VSO in the Philippines.

The charity previously announced Dan Rickman as the new Mitzvah Day executive director. Dan was head of fundraising at Magen David Adom and worked as a coordinator on last year’s Mitzvah Day. At 30, he becomes one of the youngest charity executive directors in the UK.

Simon Rothstein, 37, has taken a year-round role as a PR consultant for Mitzvah Day, after a successful short-term brief last year.

The Mitzvah Day team also includes founder and chair Laura Marks OBE, interfaith chair Daniela Pears and engagement co-ordinator Gabriel Webber.

 This year’s Mitzvah Day takes place on, and around, Sunday November 27.
