Who am I? I'm Michael Makovi, a random 20-something year old former-yeshiva student, having spent three years in yeshivat Machon Meir and one half-year in Yeshivat Petah Tiqwa. I am originally from Silver Spring, Maryland, and I am temporarily on break there in America, away from home in Israel.
This blog is a collection of my thoughts as they happen to occur to me, usually either from a left-wing Modern Orthodox perspective, or a right-wing perspective on Israeli politics.
Some of the authorities I most prominently follow include Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, Rabbi Moshe Shmuel Glasner, Rabbi Dr. Eliezer Berkovits, Rabbi Dr. Marc D. Angel (and concomitantly, Rabbis Benzion Uziel and Hayim David Halevy), and others of like mind (chiefly German and British Neo-Orthodox); and Rabbi Meir Kahane and Moshe Feiglin.
The following is a short interview that Ilana-Davita conducted with me.
