Daniel Housman, Founding Advisor
Daniel was one of the half dozen volunteers who co-founded BINA in 2010, to build community by presenting challenging and enlightening content to Jewish and Israeli-American young professionals in Los Angeles. He co-produced and hosted over two dozen intellectual salons with luminaries of social science, business, arts and culture, including former Mossad director Meir Dagan, and Brig Gen. Dan Gold (architect of the Iron Dome missile defense system).
