I was Bourne in Manchester England where I grew up in the broughton-park jewish community. After a bit of travelling in Israel at age 17 I decided to learn in yeshivah, to study and develope my role as a g-d fearing Jew, I'm currently learning in Yeshivat Mir Yerushalayim. I enjoy most history and science as well as jewish philosophy, mussar and of course gemarah midrash and Halachah. As my family originates from Iraq on both sides I'm especially interested in the customs of Sfardim (of all communities) and how (and why) the conclusions and methodology of poskim such as the ben-ish-chai, rav ben-Zion Aba-shaul, Rav Nissim Kedouri, and rav Ovadia (and sons) as well as others compare with the contemporary Gedolim of Askenazi traditions. My parents very recently made Aliyah where my father edits books for yeshivat Ahavat Shalom.
