Dave Weinberg has organized a lot of interesting things in the Jewish community and Jewish communal nonprofit world recently. Dave’s up for a big grant in the Jewish Federations of North America’s Jewish Communal Heroes competition right now and I’m pulling for him to win. Go vote for him.

I have a long way to go with my interviewing skills, but I had a good time with Dave and also learned that I share a first name with his son
