(JTA) – Rabbi Stephen Fuchs has been named president of the World Union for Progressive Judaism.

Fuchs has served nearly four decades as a pulpit rabbi, including his present position as senior rabbi of Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford, Conn., a job he has held since 1997. He is a past chair of the Central Conference of American Rabbis committee on inter-religious affairs, and is known for his work in Jewish-Christian relations and social justice issues.

Fuchs will assume the presidency in July, and plans to divide his time equally between North America and Israel.

The World Union is the international umbrella organization of more than 1,200 Reform, Liberal, Progressive and Reconstructionist congregations in 44 countries.
