Special Guests

Manny fled from Yemen to America, aged 13, due to anti-Semitism. Unable to see his family for 10 years, he worked with the Jewish Agency to coordinate their escape to Israel. Manny's experiences give him a distinctive perspective on the story of the 1 million Jewish refugees from Arab Lands, the rise of anti-Semitism and Israel advocacy on campus.

Manny Dahari

Dina, Jerusalem U's CEO, is responsible for vision and strategy, with a focus on creating scalable educational products and platforms to reach and impact young Jews. Dina passionately believes that the Jewish community must invest more in digital strategies to secure the overall vitality of the Jewish people and a vibrant Jewish future.

Dina Rabhan

Jacob, host of the History of Israel Explained YouTube series, is a rising senior at Harvard University where he studies Comparative Religion with a focus on Judaism and religion in modern society. Jacob believes that YouTube is the best channel for reaching young adults as this is where they search for content online.

Jacob Schwartz

Noam, Jerusalem U's Senior VP of Education, leads the education vision and implementation with a special focus on the development of meaningful content and resources for students and educators. He holds a doctorate in educational psychology from USC with a focus on curriculum design.
