I am currently writing a book entitled "My Sword and My Bow," which contains my essential approach towards living a Torah life, and covers topics as wide ranging as why Jews belong to the Land of Israel, how learning breathing techniques can help make prayer meaningful, to gender-related issues, to issues of death, suicide, and the afterlife... to simply how to have a happy life, and what I believe God wants from us. I hope you will enjoy this book. Support for my work can be offered by visiting my Kofi-com page or my Patreon page.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
I grew up in Los Angeles in the late 70's. I was playing instruments by the age of six, but at the age of 12 began playing bass in a local rock band. Fast forward years later, and the rock and roll scene in Los Angeles had become almost frightening to me. I saw things that convinced me that I no longer wanted to become a "rock star." I began exploring spirituality.
A year later, I "returned" to Judaism, and began studying Torah at YULA high school under Rabbi Moshe Meiselman, shlita. After years of advanced Yeshiva study in Toras Moshe and Mir, Jerusalem, I decided to attend American Jewish University in Los Angeles, completing a BA in Literature and an MA in Rabbinic Literature. Upon graduation, I returned to Israel, and completed Semicha under the tutelage of Rav Yitzchok Berkovits, shlita.
I worked as a "teaching" Rabbi for almost twenty years, until I made Aliyah in 2013. There are thank God enough Rabbi's in Israel!
Most recently I worked as a writer in the Donor Relations department of United Hatzalah in Jerusalem. These days I make my living as a writer and musician, and of course, selling musical instruments at amazing discounts... shipped straight from the US to your home in Israel via my musical concierge service, JetMet Entertainment. Just google it.
