Kasher vs. kasher
David Kasher (@parshanut) grew up in Oakland, California, but spent his summers in Hassidic Brooklyn, and he's been integrating these experiences ever since. After graduating from Wesleyan University, he knocked around for several years in yeshivas in Israel before landing in rabbinical school at Chovevei Torah, where he was ordained in 2007. He now spends his time bringing Torah to the people, one living room discussion group at a time, as the Senior Rabbinic Educator at Kevah. He's also working on a doctorate in Legal Philosophy, and writes a blog on the weekly Torah portion. You can read it, or listen to the podcasted version, at
