It all started when…

Eli was born and raised in a Hasidic Jewish community in Brooklyn, which he left to pursue life, liberty and a law degree. Shortly thereafter (read: seven years later), he saw the error in his ways. A recovering lawyer, Eli is now pursuing his long-repressed passion in the dramatic arts. When he's not ably and competently dispatching his duties as managing director of New Yiddish Rep, Eli translates obscure tomes, updates his website and hatches ill-fated schemes for world dominance.
