I am currently a graduate student in English literature at Berkeley. Before that, I was a Dorot fellow in Israel, and before that, I helped start Open Zion, a group blog curated by journalist Peter Beinart and based at The Daily Beast, and I still write for them occasionally. I’ve written for Tablet, TheAtlantic.com and The Jewish Daily Forward, inter alia. I tweet @RaffiMagarik.
I graduated Yale with BA in English. I’ve studied rabbinics at Yeshivat Maale Gilboa and Yeshivat Hadar—where I have also taught—and I interned at “Room for Debate,” the online opinion forum of The New York Times. I once lived in Uganda for three months, and I like to bake clafoutis.
