Natan is one of the youngest Jewish communal leaders in South Africa and active in combating BDS. At university, he served as National Treasurer of the South African Union of Jewish Students, and was subsequently elected National Chairman of the organization, representing over 2,000 Jewish students nationwide. In this role, Natan focused on bridge-building between Jewish and black students through multiple projects aimed at increasing tolerance and understanding towards Jews and Israel on campus. South Africa is the epicenter of the global BDS movement, as it is common for the false comparison to be made between Apartheid SA and Israel. Natan helped steer the local fight against BDS by starting a program that has taken 60 BDS leaders to Israel and the West Bank; many participants have spoken out against the BDS movement upon their return and have blocked BDS resolutions within their political parties. Outside of his Jewish communal involvement, Natan is the co-founder of En-novate, a company that exposes young entrepreneurs to different innovation centers around the world via one-week trips, with the aim of making them more globally competitive. To date, he has taken 150 entrepreneurs to Israel, and is expanding the company’s offering to Silicon Valley in 2016.
