Daniel Bahner brings experience in program development, community building and social-justice education to Keshet. Originally from southwest Ohio, Daniel quickly formed a connection between his Jewish identity and the importance of inclusion and working toward a more socially just society. He dived further into social justice and Jewish thought while an undergraduate at Lehigh University. Studying classics and religion studies, Daniel learned the importance of reflecting upon the past, but at the same time finding meaning for the present. At the same time, he began to become involved in many social-justice education groups, winning multiple campus awards for his involvement. His passion for social justice and education continued during his graduate studies at New York University, where he received a master’s in higher education administration and student affairs.Daniel joined Keshet spending three years working at a small liberal arts college as assistant director of residence life. There, he trained students in building inclusive residential communities as well as assisting students whenever they had concerns about their community environment. Daniel was highly involved with campus-inclusion projects, presenting at conferences, putting together programs, sitting on committees and managing educational processes. For his work, he was awarded a major regional award for commitment to social justice. Daniel is excited to be working with communities across the country and helping to facilitate a larger conversation about inclusion and equity.
