A Few Words About Me

“Treat His will as if it were your own will so that He will treat your will as if it were His will.”

Zvi has lived in Israel for over 20 years immersing himself in the religion, culture, and language of the Holy Land. This experience enables him to pass along his perspective to his students, especially as it relates to understanding the cultural, social, historical, and language aspects of various texts.


Zvi holds a doctorate in Rabbinic Midrash from the University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation deals with the rabbinic understanding of ontological Torah in the opening sections of the midrashic text, Bereshit Rabbah, and the possibility of a latent retort to Christianity’s understanding of Jesus as it is presented in the Prologue to the Gospel of  John.

Professional Experience

Zvi gives a course, “From the Jewish Jesus to Christianity”, at the Hebrew University’s International School, which examines the Jewishness of Jesus from numerous aspects, and the cultural, social, theological, and historical elements that led to his becoming the object of faith in Christianity. Zvi also gave a private seminar to International School students on the principles of Rabbinic Midrash. In addition, he taught Biblical Hebrew for 11 years at an American institution in Jerusalem.
