I shifted between Israel and New York for three decades of my life, then ultimately decided that my native country of Canada was where I wanted to be. I've been living in Montreal, which is not my home town (I was born in Vancouver), since the summer of 2017.

From my perch on the Plateau, just two blocks from Leonard Cohen's house in what was once the beating heart of Jewish immigrant Montreal, I write about all manner of things, from human rights and Middle East policy to book reviews and social commentary. I continue to do radio and TV commentary, primarily about Israel-Palestine and social media. I also translate from Hebrew to English.  That photo was taken in Tel Aviv in 2009; I should probably update it, though I do still own that shirt.
