I am currently a Dorot Fellow in Israel, where I study, volunteer, and write. 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 in May 2010. I’ve studied rabbinics at Yeshivat Maale Gilboa and Yeshivat Hadar, and I interned at “Room for Debate,” the online opinion forum of The New York Times. I once lived in Uganda for three months. The last great book I read was Balzac’s Cousin Bette.
I like to write about:
- New Books and Movies
- All Things Jewish
- Gender, Sexuality, and Feminism
- Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
I’d like to write about:
- American Evangelical Christianity
- Things That Are Not Real (i.e., fiction)
