Director of Educational Programmes
I want to thank you for your incredible contribution to the Yesod Retreat last week. From beginning to end it was a pleasure to work with you, to see your wisdom and professionalism in action, watch how you shared your experience and care for all the participants, and benefit from your calm approach, your warm tone and the depth of what you brought. I know that the participants really appreciated everything you shared with them, and I know I did too.
Thank you SO much. I look forward to being in touch soon, and to working together again.

David Raphael is one of the wisest professionals in the field today. He is a brilliant strategist, inspired and inspiring leader and a man of impeccable integrity. David's wisdom and guidance enabled several institutions in which I am deeply involved to address critical organizational issues such as governance, management, strategic planning, financial and human resource development with tremendous insight, resolve and clarity. David has an amazing sense of humor which makes working with him fun while maintaining focus on the tasks at hand.
JEWISH COMMUNITY OF ATHENS
Taly Mair, Director
During the months I have worked with David, I had guidance in areas where nobody has guided me before as the work of professionals in Jewish non-profit organizations is a unique experience and cannot be compared with working in other NGO or other regular companies. It was a pleasure to have worked with David and a great asset for my work as a professional in the Jewish Community of Athens.
