Have a look around. In the different tabs above and the posts collected below, you'll find my explorations of Judaism, Israel, the Middle East, the Bible, and more. Most of them were published in places like the Tower, Forward, Jewish Ideas Daily, Contentions, or CNN.com. A little scholarship, a little personal, at times punchy or inspirational, but all of it trying to understand how our ancient tradition can inform our lives as modern, thinking people.
