David is the CEO of Kehilá Latina since January of this year. Among his works, he deals with marketing, the most bureaucratic, and even relations with other institutions. “For example, we had an activity with an organization similar to ours for English-speaking youth”Says David, who is Colombian, and before arriving in Israel he passed through the United States.
The Kehilá Latina Board of Directors consists of Eliezer Gurevich, Andres Ewan, Rafael Varca, Tally Navarro, Agustina Robman, Nico Berg, Miriam Keats, Guido Wars, plus David.

For David, the essence of Kehila is the commitment shown by her participants. “Everyone is motivated,” he explains, noting that there are few similar experiences in Israel. Even, “There was nothing like this in Jerusalem.”
Looking ahead, David understands that there are guidelines by which to grow, although he makes an effort to point out that it is growth within Kehila. “We don’t think too much about expanding Kehilá across the country, but rather in growing within it. Being older, you don’t just reach young people. We also have a full-time rabbi, today we don’t have one”Highlights.
However, Kehila Latina does not waste time and continues to add activities. Now, David tells that they are starting a big fundraising campaign from June 23-30. The idea, David explains, is to “get NIS 80,000.”
