Born and bread in the Midwest. First Israel experience was a kibbutz the year following high-school. Stateside, again I pursued a BS in Electronic Engineering
Technology. Years later, after a spiritual awakening, I spent 8 years studying in Israel to achieve and receive a BA in Talmudic Law and ordination from Rabbi
Z.N. Goldberg, shlit"a, member of the Jerusalem Rabbinic High Court. Along the way I grabbed a Teachers Certificate from the Israeli Ministry of Education. I've worked with teens at risk and who have risked it all. Am currently working in Kashrus [Kosher supervision], tutoring and teaching on the side.
