Former lawyer and Web mastermind David Abitbol was born in Israel and raised in Montreal, and says he has a love-hate relationship with Jews. A product of 11 years of Jewish day school, one year at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and far more University education that (he thinks) is heathy, he still is fascinated by Judaism. In addition, David is an epitome of Zionist with his love and devotion to Israel, with a special relationship and love for Jerusalem.
In this exclusive video, Abitbol talks about Jewlicious.com, the blog he created with a few friends years ago, simply to talk about and discuss Jewish issues.
Over the years, Jewlicious became a phenomenon and trend in the Jewish world for young Jewish adults. The idea of Jewlicious, was personified, morphed to an adjective, noun, and even a live, breathing annual festival, not to mention, most recently a summer camp.
Professionally, David works as a Web designer with his company, DrummerWeb, for a wide range of clients. However, over the years, David’s involvement in multiple Jewish activities and events have included over nine Taglit-birthright Israel trips, various Israel advocacy organizations and deeply connected to the grass roots efforts for both effectiveness and gratification reasons.
