At the 2017 MoTAS Shabbat, the 2016 Man of the Year, Barry Mann, introduced this year’s Man of the Year as follows:
This year’s Man of the Year can truly be called a Renaissance Man. His interests are so varied that he should be up for “The Most Interesting Man in the World”.
If there is a job to be done, all you have to do is ask him and it will be done.
He is selfless to a fault. His knowledge of Judaism is astounding.
Having grown up in West Los Angeles and attending high school there, he received his undergraduate and masters degrees at UCLA.
He has a profound and varied interest in theatre and seems to never miss a performance, whether it be large or small theaters.
He is also a fanatic on board games and has an extensive collection of some of the most esoteric games you can imagine.
As a computer whiz, he has worked on our website, created flyers for our dining events and our various special events (including the golf tournament.)
He has maps in his head and is an expert on our California highways. He runs a number of blogs on the LA theatre scene and our LA streets and highways. His knowledge of computers and cyber security are well known.
He is our last two years president of MoTAS. He is our own DANIEL FAIGIN!!
