The author of Esser Agaroth was born and raised in Southern California. He flew to Israel for the first time in 1997, stayed, and has not left the country since 1998. With a B. A. from UCLA, and an M. S. from California State University, East Bay, he has worked in a variety of fields, including education and mental health. He has lived all over central Israel, including Tel-Aviv, Beth-El, Ofra, K'far Tapu'ah, and has worked all over the Binyamin and Shomron areas.
He now lives in Jerusalem, continuing to identify with the "real settlements" and "real settlers," not the poster child suburbs favored by the Jerusalem Post and the like.
A few days before Rosh Hodesh of the First Month (Nissan) 5774 (March 26, 2014), he renounced his American citizenship, and is now holds only Israeli citizenship.
Esser Agaroth (10 Agaroth) is the approximate equivalent of 2¢ in Israeli currency, as in "giving my 2¢ worth."
Esser Agaroth is a commentary on life in Israel and on being Jewish.
Living in an undisclosed location in the Oppressive and Occupied [by Arabs] Territories (AKA: Yehudah and Shomron), this IDF veteran knows just where to look for those scoops in Hebrew you probably won't ever find in English!
