Both will continue to work with the Association as volunteers.

Victor Sorenssen, studied at the Jewish school in Barcelona. At the age of 18, he spent the year in Israel, first on a kibbutz and then at the Jewish Agency?s Machon Lemadrichim. After that year, he returned to Barcelona to pursue a Degree in Political Science and later studied Hebrew Philology. He has been editor of the Mozaika magazine, specialized in art, literature and the history of Jewish culture. From 2014, he has been the director of the Jewish community of Barcelona (CIB).
