Biographical Info:

I am a historian who specializes in the history of Jewish nationalism, Zionism, and other trends within Jewish modernity. My focus in research and teaching is on the development of modern Jewish identities -  in Europe, in the Middle East and elsewhere. I study the wide range of attitudes held by Jewish intellectuals, scholars and writers toward the 'Orient' and the Arab world during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Between the years 2018 and 2022 I was the deputy director of the Ben-Zvi institute for the study off Jewish communities in the Middle East.
