Carl came to the field of Israel education via his first career in Israeli journalism. During nearly 15 years living in Israel, he reported on some of the biggest—and smallest—stories unfolding in the country. After climbing the ladder at The Jerusalem Post, he served as the paper's Editor before opting to apply the lens of journalism to help North American learners of all ages engage with Israel in multi-faceted ways. When he's not collaborating with his iCenter colleagues to build the field of Israel education, he can be found teaching current events classes and making jam, hosting family and friends, and spending quality time with his grandson.
