Daniel joined the JFB team in July 2016 after having assisted with a variety of Federation initiatives, including Yom Ha’Atzmaut festivities and coordinating Young Bluegrass Jews (YBJ) programming. His local involvement came shortly after a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip in 2012, where he fell in love with the Jewish community. Daniel has been active at Temple Adath Israel (TAI) through Generation TAI, the Temple’s chavurah for adults ages 20-40. His role with JFB includes working on Shalom Magazine and Shalom Events, managing JFB’s website and social media accounts, and assisting with YBJ outreach and programming.
