Bruce David (www.davidart.com), President of Light of the Nations, has dedicated the past 30+ years of his life to creating creative, engaging, Jewish educational resources that provide people with the opportunity to discover and experience the contemporary values of a "Wholistic" approach to Judaism. Storytelling art filled with hidden multidimensional symbolism, original music, and other forms of creative expression have broadened his spectrum of experiential Jewish materials, all of which are now embodied in the programs of Light of the Nations. firstname.lastname@example.org

Rabbi Ron Klotz “I've always maintained that it is sacred work, teaching kids to love Judaism and strengthening their Jewish identities.” Ron was involved with heading up Jewish camps for fifty years before moving to Bloomington and coming on board with our organization. Ron also serves as a Rabbi at Indiana University Hillel. Rabbi Ron has been fortunate to work with many of the greats, including Debbie Friedman and Dan Nichols and feels Light of the Nations has so much to offer. Rabbi Ron thinks our unique programming will be great not only for camps, but also for schools and Jews and non-Jews everywhere. He has been a tremendous blessing in helping to develop Light of the Nations educational programming. With his guidance and assistance, we now have a good number of art/music fusions, educational overviews and other programming ready to share with others.
