Eric Kranzler is a second-generation Angelino. His father was raised in Boyle Heights and attended the Breed Street Shul and he grew up in the Beverly Grove area and was raised in the Modern Orthodox community. After college and once he started his career, he only attended shul once a year with his dad for the High Holidays.
After his father’s death in 2015, he decided it was time to go on his own Jewish spiritual journey to find a shul that spoke to him. He attended many. Not until, he was introduced to IKAR, did Eric feel at home. IKAR was the place Eric felt an emotional connection to a shul, and its davening. He deeply appreciates IKAR’s inclusiveness and its engagement with the community at large. Eric has always been politically involved, and appreciates IKAR’s commitment to civic issues and making our city and country a better place for all.
Professionally, Eric is a founding partner of Management 360. He currently manages the careers of such talent clients as Tobey Maguire, Rooney Mara, Kirsten Dunst, Matthew Broderick, Christina Applegate, Sara Gilbert, Amanda Peet, Michael Peña, Milo Ventimiglia, and Mary Steenburgen.
