About Me

I live in Jerusalem, married to Na'ama, and father of four children. I learnt in a Yeshiva high school and later on in Yeshivat Hesder and served in IDF armored corps. In 1991 I began my university studies in the interdisciplinary program for outstanding students at Tel Aviv University. I learnt Physics, Math, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy and Jewish and general History. I graduated B.Sc. in Math and Physics and M.A and history in 1997. While working in various educational enterprises like civic education for religious schools, and teaching Jewish Philosophy in Yeshivat Siach Yitzchak, I started writing a Ph.D in history at the Hebrew University and graduated in 2005. I worked for several years as editor in chief of Harav ShaGaR (Shimon Gershon Rosenberg) writings. Since 2008 I teach History in Bar Ilan University, from 2012 as lecturer.
