On this Website and its Author

Shalom, dear visitor.

My name is Dr. Nadav Shifman Berman, I am a scholar of Jewish thought, the philosophy of Halakhah, and their connections with classical American Pragmatism. I also examine the contribution of Jewish thought to pragmatist ethics of technology, and interested in Jewish-Christian relations (see more at my Academia website).

In 1996 I studied at the M’aaleh Gilbo’a Yeshivah, where I learned from great teachers, including Rabbi David Bigman, R. Yehudah Gil’ad, R. Shmuel Reiner, and R. Elisha Ancselovits. Between 2002-2006 I was privileged to study at “Revivim”, Jewish studies teachers training honors program.

I am married to Eliraz, we reside in Jerusalem with our children. Here I mostly reflect on Judaism, Israel, sociality, education, and technology, from a Jewish-humane and Zionist perspective. The opinions expressed here are my own, and do not necessarily represent any institution I am affiliated with. In fact, if you will read this website carefully, you will notice that some opinions I previously expressed don't fully represent my present views. This website is ultimately an invitation for a conversation.

All the best,

Nadav S. Berman
