He is Chairman of the The Jewish Economic Forum, General Partner of Sixth Millennium Venture Partners and Wadi Ventures, board member at several startup companies.
A Bible and Talmud Scholar (his weekly Italian newsletter on Torah.it is followed by thousands), he is also a Community Leader and opinion maker within the Italian Jewry both in Israel and Italy.
