Hi all,

My name is Matt, and I’m a lifelong Bostonian spending the year living in Israel. I’m a participant on OTZMA, a volunteer-based program run by MASA, the Jewish Agency for Israel, and the Jewish Federations of North America. Currently, I’m living in Haifa, splitting my time between the Haifa/Boston Connection, teaching television production to high school students, and helping other students with their English.

After learning about the new JewishBoston.com website, I figured it would be a good idea to post a link to my blog, where I’ve been writing updates about my time here in Israel – you can find it at http://mattycohen.blogspot.com. I’ll do my best to put all future posts on this site too, but in case I forget, you’ll have the original link. Feel free to contact me with any and all comments and questions!
