Danny Mishkin is a proven innovator for Jewish teen programming. Danny earned a M.A. in Jewish Education at HUC-JIR to make a career in Jewish education. Danny was selected as a fellow in The Leadership Institute, a joint program of HUC-JIR and JTS. Danny is one of the co-founders of Sababa Beach Camps, and he is thrilled to combine his two passions of surfing and Jewish education to help kids feel the stoke that comes from each. Before becoming the Director of Sababa, Danny helped three failing or non-existent synagogue youth programs grow into thriving, exciting teen communities. Danny began his career working with kids at Camp Wildwood in Bridgton, ME for 7 summers, eventually becoming Athletic Director.
