Dave Weinberg, Founder & Chairman
A serial social entrepreneur, Dave Weinberg is the CEO of CAUSIL. Through events, strategy and consultation, Causil helps organizations engage in the best practices of communications, marketing and technology.
Dave started his career by founding Not Now Not Ever, evolving into the Save Darfur Coalition, an organization with international exposure and impact. Since then, Dave has founded multiple socially-conscious organizations as well as various technology and entrepreneurial ventures.
Under Dave’s leadership, Causil produces the Future of Jewish Nonprofit Summit series around the world in order to inspire growth, facilitate change and spark creativity. The New York Jewish Week responded: â€œbe sure Dave is on your radar.â€
Often tapped for his opinion on technology, Dave was listed in the â€œTop 50 Influential Personalities Onlineâ€ by the Jewish Telegraph Agency (JTA). Dave lives in Silver Spring, MD with his wife and two sons. You can follow Dave on Twitter @weinberg81.
Dani Klein, COO & Executive Editor
What’s more Jewish than having an opinion? ‘Nothing’ if you asked Dani, a self-aware, outspoken Zionist marketer. Or Zionist-marketer? Dani was very active over the past decade as an activist and professional Israel supporter running StandWithUs’ campus division and social media.Â
More recently, Dani took his marketing skills, and MBA, to Digitas and American Express, where he works in Social Media Marketing Strategy… and loves it.Â
Something that Dani’s become known for is his passion for travel, which spawned YeahThatsKosher.com in 2008, currently the web’s largest Jewish / Kosher Travel website.Â
And like Dave, Dani’s also been featured in both the NY Jewish Week in their first ever “36 Under 36: The Next Wave of Jewish Innovators” in 2008 and by the same JTA top Jewish tweeters list in both 2009 and 2010. If you want to see what they’re fussing about, you can follow him at @YeahThatsKosher.Â Dani lives in NYC with his wife and son.
David J. Fryman, Managing Editor
David is a chess-playing, Yankee-following attorney and lover of philosophy (or as Dani once introduced David to the world of Twitter, “an overly opinionated fellow”). While in college, David majored in philosophy where he wrote his honors thesis on Plato’s Euthyphro and served as a regular columnist for the school’s newspaper.
For the past decade, David has been writing and blogging about religion, philosophy, law, politics, and sports. David lives in New York City with his wife.
We would like to acknowledge the original Jewneric co-founders (besides Dave) who spend countless hours building this great site, all of whom youâ€™ll be able to continue reading on here from time to time:
Zecharia Mehler. Editor, Kosher. @thekoshercritic
Shalom Silbermintz. Technical Advisor. @sirspamsalot
Mosher Glasser. Editorial Advisor.
Dani’s excited to be working with Dave and the dozens of new writers in re-Jew-vinating Jewneric.com.
We are always looking for new talented and opinionated writers. Nudge us any time to join the family.
