A FFB Yekke born in Johannesburg, South Africa. Husband. Father of 2 sons and 4 daughters. Davens Vasikin daily and lives & works in Jerusalem.

Graduated from Yeshivas Toras Emes high school, then studied in Yeshiva Kol Torah, Jerusalem. Studied in Kollel for a while, taught Limudei Kodesh and eventually went to work in computers.

My work history is on LinkedIn.

Been blogging almost daily - since Dec 2007 - on Halocho a Day and its mirror on FaceBook.

My learning achievements include finishing a Daf Yomi cycle, learning Chagiga over 100 times, completing Shas-Mishnayos over 10 times, reviewing the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch over 25 times, reading through the Rambam's Mishne Torah 3 times and the Tur & Shulchan Aruch, Aruch Hashulcha's Orach Chaim, Medrash Raba and Medrash Tanchuma once.

Currently - תשע"ה - studying Tanach with Rashi and Malbim, Aruch HaShulchan Even HoEzer, Tur with Beis Yosef, Yalkut Shimoni and Hilchot Shmita.

Besides for practical Halacha, I have a soft spot for the 3 Targums on Chumash; lots of interesting gems hiding there.

I am not a Rabbi, but I do enjoy public speaking.
I am not a Sofer, but I have written myself two Megilot and my own Sefer Torah; it took me 9 years to complete.

Self reminder: It's & rlm; you need to add to the end of Hebrew text.
