HI, I'M ZACH

I am obsessed with empowering people to communicate effectively and build relationships across divides. 

I love thinking and teaching about Zionism, Israel, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and Jewish Peoplehood. 

I believe stories are the most powerful force in our world, and that's why I like to inspire and teach others how to tell their stories.​

If you like any of these things too, maybe we should get in touch! I am always looking for opportunities to speak, write, learn, teach, and have interesting conversations.
