Articles published in Israel's national newspaper|
In 2010 and 2011, I worked as a content editor for the English-language Internet Edition and staff writer for the English-language Print Edition of Israel's national newspaper, Ha'aretz. Many of my articles in Ha'aretz focus on the native-English-speaking community in Israel, mainly from North America, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, many of the articles also focus on issues that are of particular interest to me, which are health, equality, and freedom - and the lack of these. Below are links to a few of my text articles and links to a few of my video articles on these same topics. Click here for a complete list of links to all of my Ha'aretz articles.
