Help Recognize Young Jewish Leader Daneel Schaechter

May 11, 2015

Daneel Schaechter, Kulanu’s youngest board member and our Latin America Coordinator, on one of his many adventures through the Crypto-Jewish world of Central and South America.

Many of you are already familiar with the accomplishments of Daneel Schaechter of New York City, Kulanu’s youngest board member and our Regional Coordinator for Latin America. Daneel has traveled on behalf of Kulanu to visit, teach, and support returning and emerging Anousim communities in Central and South America; welcomed many Jewish communities into Kulanu’s global network and helped facilitate grants, donations, and volunteers to Latin America; has been a dedicated Kulanu volunteer since he was in high school (he is now a college graduate), and is always glad to play an active role in Kulanu’s various projects and programs.

In addition to his impressive work within Kulanu, Daneel has been awarded research grants and other competitive positions, including his current status as a Fulbright scholar in Brazil, where he continues to volunteer for Kulanu. In recognition for all his achievements (see his LinkedIn profile here for his full CV), Kulanu has chosen Daneel Schaechter as our honoree for the 2015 Kulanu Tribute Journal!

Go to to learn more about Daneel, the Journal, and how to contribute.

We are proud and honored to have Daneel Schaechter on our team. Please join us in recognizing this rising young star of the Jewish world with a contribution to this year’s ad-book – a contribution that will both tell Daneel you admire his commitment to the global Jewish community, and support Kulanu’s work with Jewish communities around the world.

The final Tribute Journal, containing your names, messages and photos, will be published on the Kulanu website this summer; the deadline for submissions is May 31, 2015.

We hope you will participate in the 2015 Tribute Journal project, not just to help us honor the important work that Daneel has done on behalf of Crypto-Jewish (Anousim) communities in Latin America, but also to inspire other young Jewish leaders. Please share this message with others in your networks!
