About me

Gender MALE
Location Kiryat Shmuel, Haifa, Israel
Introduction I am currently 33 years old and I live in Kiryat Shmuel, a suburb of Haifa, Israel. I live with my wonderful wife and my four wonderful children. I was born in Toronto, where I served as the head of the largest Bnei Akiva region in North America, as well as serving on a number of community boards. I studied Political Science at Yeshiva University in New York and worked for a hedge fund. In 2002, I moved to Israel on the first Nefesh B'Nefesh flight. I have worked as the marketing director for an electronics company in Nahariya, and as the sales coordinator for a hi-tech company in Haifa. I am a frequent guest political commentator for Israel National News and have been published in a number of local and foreign newspapers. I am the coordinator of the Anglophone division of the Yisrael Beytenu party and a founding member of Hadar Israel: Council for Civil Action. I was Yisrael Beytenu's 21st candidate in the 2009 elections for the 18th Knesset.
