Keynote Speakers

Hanna David (nιe: Ehrenstein), PhD was born in Jaffa in 1952 to a father immigrating to Israel from Vienna in 1938, and Hungarian mother, a survivor of Auschwitz. The second in a 4-child family she had insisted on starting nursery school at the age of 13 months, together with her 13-months older brother, and since then showed deep interest in public speaking, making friends and initiating social intercourses; somewhat later she started reading and has not stopped since. At age 15 years she became a youth-writer of "MA'ARIV LA'NOAR" – the youth edition of the then most published daily Israeli paper, which had led her to publishing of Hebrew and English short stories, and translating to Hebrew, mainly from German. At age 18 she graduated from the Ultra-Orthodox girls' high-school in Ramat Gan and started her mathematics, physics, Hebrew literature and high-school teaching certificate studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In 1975 she received her MA from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, and soon afterward started her family. Hanna David received her PhD, "magna cum laude", in educational psychology (minors: didactics of mathematics and education) from Ludwig Maximilians Universitδt, Mόnchen, She worked at the Tel Aviv University between 1976 and 2004.
Prof. David's interest in giftedness started when she was 11, with the birth of her brother who, like all males in the family, was gifted. While still in high school she became an expert of accelerated teaching for Ultra-Orthodox boys whose parents wanted them to get "secular" education in addition to the religious one they received in school. Teaching and counseling the gifted became Hanna's recognized expertise in 1995, when she started teaching the course: "the gifted child in the regular classroom" at the Talpiyot Teachers' College in Tel Aviv. Since then she has taught in 3 other high education institutions, and instructed many students in the field of gifted education.
In the last 15 years, Prof. David has become a popular counselor for gifted students, with or without disabilities; a known expert of gifted education in Israel and abroad, an often invited lecturer in national and international conferences and meetings; an expert evaluator for the European commission, and a prolific writer of 10 books and over 90 articles.

Professor Raphael C. Njoku is Graduate Chair of African History at University of Louisville, United States of America who holds doctorates from the Vrije University at Brussels (2001) and Dalhousie University (2003). He is a specialist in African History and Politics, African Social and Economic History, African Culture and Development. Professor Njoku is the author of the famous work Culture and Customs of Morocco (Greenwood, 2005), and African Cultural Values: Igbo Political Leadership in Colonial Nigeria 1900–1966 (Routledge, 2006). He is also co-editor of Missions, States and Colonial Expansion in Africa (Routledge 2007). He has also published 20 articles in scholarly journals, edited volumes, and encyclopedias. With a fellowship from the New York based Schomburg Center for Research in Black Studies, he is currently working on a new book project entitled Symbols and Meanings of African Masks and Carnival of the Diaspora.
As a scholar, Professor Njoku had been devoted to the search for answers to contemporary Africa’s issues. Africa today poses more questions than answers. To the world, Africa pleads for understanding—yes, a crucial understanding about its culture, its peoples, and its setbacks. Until it is understood at what point the “rain of depredation” started beating the people, it might be difficult to reverse the precarious situation of the continent today. His mission is to continue to search for answers to the Big Puzzle through research and teaching while hoping that a better knowledge of the people, their culture, their psychology, and their worldview hold the key to Africa’s future.
