His family watched as the newly-named  Rabbi Doctor Dovid Slavin received his honour. Also on hand was Professor Suzanne Rutland who supervised Rabbi Slavin following the retirement of Professor Alan Crown in 1997.

Rabbi Doctor Slavin started his 20-yr journey under the late Professor Alan Crown. He completed his PhD thesis on the educational contribution made to Judaism by Rabbi Meir Shapiro of the Lublin Yeshiva in Poland under the supervision of Professor Suzanne Rutland.

Professor Rutland told J-Wire: “I am extremely proud of him. This is an amazing achievement especially when one considers that at the outset he had never received a secular education and had never studied English. He was examined at the highest level and all the examiners were international.”
