Welcome- I am complicated

Welcome to my personal site.  I have had a web site since 1995- Historycentral.com. That site is dedicated to telling the story of American and World History. I have had my corporate site Multieducator  for 20 years.  My high school English teacher would be shocked to know that most of what I do is write, which is ironic since good writing does not come easily to me.  I have always spoken better then I write, but somehow that’s is what I do most of the time.  I write for our web site, I write the content for our Apps and I write about what is happening in Israel.  For 18 years I have written what some call a blog, but I never considered a blog about events in Israel called Israel Update. Eleven years ago I moved back to Israel. Over the past few years I have blogged for the Times of Israel. In 2014  I started writing for Newsweek and have been doing so ever since.

For the past six years I have been a frequent guest on i24News commenting on both American politics, Israeli politics and aviation.  I am also a frequent contributor to ILTV, and have been a guest at Knesset TV and Galie Tzahal.

Over the past few years I have worked on developing over 70 Apps for the iPhone and iPad.  Most of the Apps are on the App store but some have been contract work.In 2014 , I traveled to Poland with my daughter Tali, to gather the content of an App we did on the major cities and Jewish communities of Poland. That App has been totally redone and now includes 400 town and villages in Poland all of whom I wrote  a history of the Jews. It is in beta now.

I titled this – I am complicated- and I am.  I have been an Apple Developer for over 30 years and have strong views on the role of technology in our society. I have taught on and off since I was in high school, and it’s one of the things I enjoy the most.  I have strong beliefs about education, and spent almost 10 year of my life founding and then being President of private Jewish day school.  I currently live in Tel Aviv a city I love, in a country that I love, but on somedays I hate.  Over the past few years I have published a number of books I have been slowly working on a book on Israel in the 21st century, but I have no idea if or when, I will finish it.

I am happily married to Amy Erani, who has been my partner in all my ventures, and have three wonderful children.
