Speaking Engagements

“David is a wonderful storyteller and kept the audience mesmerized with his escapades as he searched for his roots in Ukraine. Ultimately, this search led him to a deeper level of connection with his Judaism, one that resonated with the audience.” Elyse Hyman, Temple Director, Temple Beth-Avodah

” You crafted a beautiful message of finding your own Jewish identity in the community. The group last night was really engaged by your personal narrative and could really relate to your sense of exploration and discovery by traveling through Soviet Russia. We had several leaders who even came up to me afterwards and were really moved by your presentation.” Jeff Gabel, Program Officer, Young Adults, CJP

“…the way you presented the talk from a very personal point of view made it a very engaging story. Your deprecating humor added to the storytelling. Most, if not all of the audience lived through the Soviet Era and remembere the politics of change, tanks and all…” Judy Riegelhaupt, BOLLI speaker organizer
