Journalism | Politics | Judaism
I am a Jerusalem-based Middle East specialist and rabbinical student. Formerly the Arab Affairs reporter for the Times of Israel, I am now a freelance journalist writing for Jewish publications in the US and Australia.
When I am not busy teaching Arabic or lecturing on Middle East politics, I dedicate my time to People of the Book, my online initiative aimed at bringing Jews and Muslims closer together through viral videos shared on social media.
I am fluent in English, Hebrew, Arabic and French, and regularly comment on Israeli politics for Al-Jazeera, BBC and Sky News Arabia. My op-eds have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
I've been covering the Arab World and the Palestinian Territories for nearly a decade, first for the Times of Israel and now as a freelance journalist. Here is a selection of my recent articles.
I regularly lecture to visiting groups on Middle East politics, the Arab-Israeli conflict and Jewish-Muslim relations.
For a fascinating talk that goes beyond the headlines, look no further.
