Daphne Lasky  /      07/24/14
Daphne Lasky is a Brooklyn-based architectural designer who has been researching and teaching about border issues in Jerusalem since 2006.

From 2006 to 2008, my architectural research focused on border issues in Jerusalem. I produced case studies and ran workshops aimed at using design to generate meaningful community discussions about the peace process. This was a formative experience for me as an early-career designer. It was the beginning of my learning to facilitate discussions and to communicate clearly in complex situations, and taught me exactly where the gaps in my design and facilitation skill sets were.

Misha Beshkins  /      07/16/14
Misha Beshkin is the founder of the project "Is it kosher?", developed by KosherDev. Our idea is intended to help people find and confirm if a product is kosher through use of a mobile device. The goal is pretty simple - user enters keyword, and app searches the list of kosher authorities for the product and reports if it is kosher or not. At this time we are available on Android, iOS and as a web app, and it is a FREE to use app.

Our project started as an independent and free solution for those who are eager to follow the Jewish way of life.
