Ethan hails from unsung and diverse West Orange, NJ and is passionate about the intersection of religious community, justice, and art. After graduating from Brown University in 2017 with a degree in Urban Studies, he served as the enrichment director for Seattle Jewish Community School, an Israeli-Palestinian activist organizer for Extend Tours, a fellow at Urban Adamah, a kitchen apprentice at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center, a leadership fellow at Romemu Yeshiva, and the creator of an Eco-Kashrut food pop-up in New York called Farmwich.
He is also a writer whose work has been published in Civil Eats, The Forward, Salon, and Tricycle among others. He is currently working on a book called “When I Grow Up, I Want to Become a Bicycle.”
When not singing Shabbat niggunim and mentoring Tivnoodles, Ethan can be found reading, biking or hiking in Forest Park, experimenting with the perfect recipe for non-dairy ice cream, and enjoying the architecture of Portland’s craftsman bungalows.
