Full disclosure: I’m kind of terrified of Reddit and not so sure how this works–so go easy on me.
I am an educator, author, and podcaster.
I am the director of education for NCSY, the youth movement of the Orthodox Union, and an instructor at Yeshiva University where I teach courses on religious failure and Jewish Public Policy.
Am I allowed to plug my book? Hope so, cause I am about to. I wrote a book called *Sin-a-gogue: Sin and Failure in Jewish Thought*. I had a long standing humor column in Mishpacha Magazine called Top 5 which was about the idiosyncrasies of Jewish life (soon to be a book! psssshhh!). And I am currently writing a series for Tablet where I present the central theme of each tractate in the Talmud along with the Daf Yomi Cycle. So far we’ve done Brachos, Shabbos, and Eiruvin.
Also, I podcast. Yeah, I hate podcasters too. But I do nonetheless. I work with Tablet’s Take One daf yomi podcast and started a new podcast and multimedia site called 18forty which addresses the theological, sociological, and emotional issues many find with Jewish life.
Almost forgot. Find me on Twitter: DBashIdeas
P.S. I love studying chassidus, specifically the works of Rav Tzadok of Lublin. Ok, that about wraps it up.
