Hiya! I am Rabbi David Bashevkin. I post narishkeit on Twitter, I'm the director of education at NCSY and I write about sin and failure. AMA, much? *9PM tonight*Hi friends! Full disclosure: I'm kind of terrified of Reddit and not so sure how this works--so go easy on me. I am an educator, author, and podcaster. I am the director of education for NCSY, the youth movement of the Orthodox Union, and an instructor at Yeshiva University where I teach courses on religious failure and Jewish Public Policy. Am I allowed to plug my book? Hope so, cause I am about to. I wrote a book called *Sin-a-gogue: Sin and Failure in Jewish Thought *. I had a long standing humor column in Mishpacha Magazine called Top 5 which was about the idiosyncrasies of Jewish life (soon to be a book! psssshhh!). And I am currently writing a series for Tablet where I present the central theme of each tractate in the Talmud along with the Daf Yomi Cycle. So far we've doneBrachos , Shabbos , and Eiruvin . Also, I podcast. Yeah, I hate podcasters too. But I do nonetheless. I work with Tablet's Take One daf yomi podcast and started a new podcast and multimedia site called18forty which addresses the theological, sociological, and emotional issues many find with Jewish life. What else? You can find more about me here and most of my more serious articles are here. I have a personal website that intermittently get updated. Almost forgot. Find me on Twitter: DBashIdeas P.S. I love studying chassidus, specifically the works of Rav Tzadok of Lublin. Ok, that about wraps it up.
