In Daniel’s words: “I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the Hebrew University and leadership from AFHU LEAD, and to find a path that will allow me to become involved in the great work AFHU is doing in support of the university.  I have been blessed with amazing role models in my great grandparents, my grandparents and my parents. They have shown me that one of the most important things in this world is to help others.”
