It’s the first day of #AbbaCamp, and you know what that means… Orientation! In this inaugural episode of #AbbaCamp you will meet head counselor Darone Ruskay, learn more about the history and background of #AbbaCamp, and begin to get a sense of what you can expect from future episodes of this podcast series.
Darone has spent the past fifteen years working in the Jewish Education field, providing top-quality Jewish education to the North American community. he served as the Conference Coordinator for The Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE) for many years. Since then he has worked at United Jewish Communities (UJC), as their Director of Young Leadership Cabinet Membership, at The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), in the Department of Institutional Advancement, and most recently as the Managing Director of The Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning at Temple Emanu-El. He brings his passion for Jewish Life and Education, as well as his personal interest and passion for media and technology to this new venture, and is perfectly suited to lead the JCast Network (which he might just have to call JCN as he is so used to working at institutions that use their initials.)
