I’m the author of ten books, most recently The Secret That Is Not A Secret: Ten Heretical Tales. (You can buy that here.) My book The Heresy of Jacob Frank: From Jewish Messianism to Esoteric Myth, won the National Jewish Book Award for scholarship.

I sometimes appear on CNN and write articles for Rolling Stone, The Daily Beast, the Forward, and my Substack newsletter. Speaking of awards, I won a 2023 New York Society for Professional Journalists award for this piece.  Recent video & audio are here. Articles are here.

I’m also a scholar with a Ph.D. in Jewish Thought, a J.D., and other degrees. These days, I’m a Field Scholar at the Emory Center for Psychedelics and Spirituality, an intersection I find fascinating. And I’m a rabbi and meditation teacher, having worked at the New York Insight Meditation Center and Ten Percent Happier.

I speak and teach often at companies, universities, religious institutions, and conferences.  Come visit me on Instagram.
