Rave Reviews About Dan Abrams
We were very pleased with the event. Dan Abrams was a consummate professional. He had a very self deprecating delivery which was quite endearing. He took a lot of time meeting with our donors prior to the talk and afterwards. His talk and delivery was timely and intellectual but at the same time had a chatty 'Hollywood' feel to it. He was a large draw in the community and we attracted new faces to the event. We were very pleased and would highly recommend him to other communities who are looking for a new face in the Jewish communal world. He was a mensch.
