Event description

Description

Daneel Schaechter has been honoured this year for his
outstanding work with new Jewish Communities in Brazil,
Ecuador and elsewhere. As Kulanu US’s regional coordinator
in Latin America, Daneel will share unique stories from his
personal experience.
Daneel who lives in New York, is a Fullbright Scholar who
went to Brazil in 2015 to teach English at a university and to
work with Prodeaf, a tech startup that aims to integrate deaf Brazilians into
society. He became a teacher, community liaison, and key link to emerging
communities of B’nei Anousim, descendants of Jews who were forcibly
converted to Catholicism, often referred to as Crypto Jews. Research suggests
that there are potentially 20,000,000 descendants—but how many are returning
to Judaism, why, and how?
