I moved to Israel (against my will) at the age of 13, finished high school, and went on to attend several Yeshivot. I also served in the IDF as a foot soldier.

I learned in Yeshiva for 14 years, during which time I received semicha from the Chief Rabbanut of Israel.

I have worked as a sofer stam (Torah scribe) for 24 years, and as a mohel (Jewish circumcision) for the past ten.

I have extensive experience as an educator, having been involved in both formal and informal education for over 20 years. I have taught in many yeshivos (Sha’alvim, Orchos Chaim, Migdal Ha’Torah and Ohr David) on a broad range of topics on both beginner and advanced levels, and in the IDF I created educational programming for the Nahal Haredi/Netzach Yehuda army program.

I have also been involved in lecturing in various venues, most recently under the auspices of the Nefesh Yehudi outreach program here in Israel. Lectures are on a broad range of topics, from those covered in my Core Emunah series, to all sorts of topics that touch upon science and the Talmud/halacha, machshava (Jewish Thought/Philosophy), and more.

I have always been an avid reader and try to utilize the gifts that HaShem gave me bring people closer to HaShem and His Torah in whatever I have done.

Above all, I value and cherish Torah study. I have merited to sit and learn in-depth for many years, and I pray to HaShem, master of all, that I should be granted many more to continue to do so. I plan on sharing on this site many articles that I have written up on all sorts of Halacha and Gemara related topics (in Hebrew).

In addition to all the above I am a husband and father, which are my most important relationships in which I always try to invest and develop.
