SDJA student a Bronfman Youth Fellow

The Bronfman Youth Fellowship in Israel selected a group of 26 North American high school students to be Bronfman Fellows; among them is San Diego Jewish Academy’s Daniel Penner.

The fellows participate in an intensive five-week program of study and travel in Israel designed to develop future community leaders committed to Jewish unity. Bronfman Youth Fellows are asked to devise and lead social actions projects upon returning home after the summer.

Two academic areas where Daniel excels are writing and music. During his junior year last year, he assisted in the founding and administration of the SDJA Maimonides Arts Collective, an after-school program for upper school students that pools the talents and passions of arts educators in the fields of dance, music, theater, writing and visual arts. Daniel is also the arts page editor for the Lion’s Den, SDJA’s student paper.

In addition to his arts interests, Daniel is a member of the varsity tennis team, a tutor in math for high school students and a founding member of the Hand Up Food Pantry at the San Diego Jewish Family Service.
