The Montefiore Endowment takes much pleasure in announcing the first graduate in its Dayanut Programme delivered by Eretz Hemdah, Institute of Advanced Jewish Studies, Jerusalem.
Rabbi Daniel Kada has been awarded semicha ‘Yadin Yadin for the Diaspora’* after passing his final examinations with distinction.
Rabbi Kada, who recently gained a first-class honours degree in Law from King’s College London, has been specially supported by the Montefiore Endowment for the past five years to enable him to devote more time to his Dayanut studies and move ahead of his colleagues on the Programme. His achievement is a great credit to him as well as to his teacher Dayan Ofer Livnat; and Rabbi Kada has now joined the London Sephardi Beth Din.
*The semicha ‘Yadin Yadin for the Diaspora’ is awarded in the three topics of Conversion, Marriage and Divorce which constitute the bulk of the work undertaken by Batei Din in the Diaspora.
