Dan’s fascinating briefings on the origins and history of the US-Israel relationship have made him a ‘must have’ on the itinerary when we bring delegations of high level elected officials to Israel through AJC Project Interchange. His knowledge is vast, his expertise is clear, and he brings context, insight and nuance to complicated issues. In addition to his substantive knowledge, Dan is affable and approachable and understands how to connect with his listeners. Whether briefing delegations visiting Israel or speaking to American groups across the United States, Dan is an effective and informative presenter who understands his subject matter and engages effectively with his audience. I have learned something new every time I have heard Dan speak, and I look forward to bringing more AJC Project Interchange delegations to learn from him in the future.
