Milford attorney David Slossberg has been appointed the Connecticut Regional Board chair of the Anti-Defamation League.
Slossberg’s career at ADL began many years ago as a member of ADL Connecticut’s Civil Rights Committee. For the last decade, he has served on ADL’s Regional Board, including as immediate past chairman of the Leadership Committee. He also serves as an ADL national commissioner.
Slossberg is a member of the Boards of the Jewish Federation of Greater New and the United Way of Milford. He served as chairman of Milford Progress, Inc., and has served on the Board of Directors of the Milford Chamber of Commerce, where he was twice named as Director of the Year. He is a past president of the Devon Rotary Club and serves on the Board of the Devon Rotary Foundation.
“It is an honor to serve as the Connecticut Regional Board Chair for the Anti-Defamation League,” said Slossberg. “We must be ever vigilant in doing the work of ADL to fight antisemitism, oppose hate and build bridges between communities. With significant developments nationally under the leadership of Jonathan Greenblatt and innovative new programs, initiatives and events in Connecticut under the leadership of Steve Ginsburg and Marji Lipshez Shapiro, it’s an extraordinary time to be working with ADL in this capacity.”
Slossberg is a managing member of the law firm of Hurwitz Sagarin Slossberg and Knuff, LLC, in Milford. He serves on the Public Outreach Committee of the Federal Court, coaching high school students in mock trials held in the Federal District Court. In 2015, he was appointed to the Connecticut Statewide Grievance Committee by the Executive Committee of Judges of the Superior Court. He served as chairman of the Connecticut Committee of the Federal Bar Council, as treasurer of the Board of Directors of the Federal Bar Foundation, and currently serves as a Trustee of the Federal Bar Council. He is a contributing editor to the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices, Business Torts and Anti-Trust Treatise (2017-2018 edition).
“David is an all-star when it comes to thinking outside the box, creating efficient processes and getting things done,” said Steve Ginsburg, regional director of ADL Connecticut. “I’m looking forward to working with David as we continue our mission to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and secure justice and fair treatment to all.”
