These are a collection of papers that I wrote while studying in New York

 

I received an Associates degree in Liberal Arts from the Borough of Manhattan Community College of the City University of New York. 

 

I continued for my Bachelors degree at the Hebrew Department of Hunter College of the City University of New York. 

 

At Hunter College I Studied Jewish History, Biblical Criticism and Hebrew. In May 2002 took an intensive six week course in Hebrew linguistics at The Jewish Theological Seminary of America on a scholarship I had received from the Hebrew Department at Hunter College. 

 

I left New York for Israel in September 2002 one semester short of completing my Bachelor degree.

Cyprus 2009-2011

Writings from a blog I wrote from May 2009 to June 2011

 

In 2007 we moved from Israel to Nicosia, Cyprus. We moved back to Israel in June 2011 where we have been since. 

 

In May 2009, while living in Cyprus, I started a blog in response to increased criticism of Israel due to the media’s distorted portrayal of Israel’s Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip

 

During the war, the Israeli Embassy in Cyprus requested that I appear on a popular TV show to give my views on the Gaza war known as Operation Cast Lead.

 

After the television interview, I felt that not enough had been said and that there were many questions left unanswered that I needed to address.

 

People's lack of information and the hatred they expressed towards the Jewish people and towards Israel caused me to start the blog.

 

I expanded the scope of my writing to include how I came to faith in Yeshua the Messiah and how He leads us to understand the scriptures and Israel’s place in God’s universal plan of salvation.
