...Where Old Media and New Media Meet!

I am a multilingual foreign news editor/writer/analyst (English, German, Hebrew, French, Italian) with 15 years of domestic and international print, radio and new media experience.

I have the technical expertise for online editing, Web design and content management, with the skill to merge old media and new media.

I observe how political events are perceived abroad and cover news, views and trends that have yet to surface here, with focus on Western Europe and Israel. And I also specialize in American Jewry, German-Jewish-Israeli reconciliation, interfaith- and inter cultural relations, Antisemitism and domestic/international women's issues.

I adhere to what the Israeli writer David Grossman once said: "We write. The world is not closing in on us. How fortunate we are. The world is not growing increasingly narrow."
