"To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness." Bertrand Russell
When he worked with us in Misgav and Safed, and with Maof Karmiel and MATI Western Galilee, David demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the business world and entrepreneurs' needs, and the ability to apply theoretical knowledge in diverse businesses until they are led to business achievements. As a Jewish Agency employee, settler and business consultant, David is very familiar with the kibbutz/moshav network and interacts superbly with various institutions, including the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Small Business Authority, and the Ministry of Defense. This background has enabled him to produce excellent results in highly complex projects, including Nahal Entrepreneurs, both organizationally and conceptually. David's ability to mediate between those with opposite views and lead a divided organization to strive toward achieving common goals is a rare asset for organizational consultation in times of crisis.
