(JTA) — Volunteers for Limmud UK were among the top 10 on the Jewish Chronicle’s Power 100 list of movers and shakers in the United Kingdom.

Limmud is a grassroots organization that plans Jewish learning conferences throughout the world.

“It is the volunteers who make it work, who must take the credit for transforming the whole culture of Jewish communal politics and organization,” the London-based Chronicle wrote. “To select one individual would be to misunderstand and misrepresent the whole nature of the movement.”

Mick Davis, chairman of the trustees of the Jewish Leadership Council, topped the list. Others in the top 10 included former Chief Rabbi Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Labor Party leader Ed Milliband and philanthropist Dame Vivien Duffield.
