About

Hi there,

Welcome! I don’t know exactly what I’m supposed to be writing on this page, but I’ll try my best. My name is, well, I go by the name Mozer. I am 23 years old. Married and have 2 children [I can literally write a blog dedicated only to them but I would like to keep personal ;)]. This blog is part of my journey in attempting to make sense of an upside down world. My perspective on life is much like an economic Conservative and a social Liberal. Oh, that’s on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The other days it’s the other way around. And Saturdays I don’t think, I sleep and spend time with my family.

I was born into an ultra-orthodox Jewish community in Lakewood, New Jersey. I was raised with the philosophy of Hasidism, hence my blog name Hasidic. Hasidism is a movement founded by Rabbi Israel Ba’al ShamTov in the late eighteenth century. Its philosophy is based on the mystical teachings of Kabballah and its practice is with fervor and joy.

The greatest inspiration in my life is my mother. For more reasons that fit on this page. And for deeper reasons that I can possibly express.

I’m a curious person and love to learn new things. I spend the majority of the day studying religious law regarding monetary disputes and hope to be ordained a rabbinic judge in another few years from now. I’m addicted to reading and writing so blogging helps me with both. I also do some freelance writing when I can get my act together. My writing appeared in Ami Magazine and I’m a contributing author at the wonderful Blogging Theology.

I doubt a lot. Actually, almost everything. My motto is, “A heart that never doubted is a field that was never plowed. Peaceful. Undisturbed. Fruitless.”

You will find here all sorts of writing. Biblical commentary, poetry, random essays, and things that don’t really make sense. I hope you will find thoughts and feelings you can identify with, or laugh, or just think Iโ€™m crazy. Whatever it is, Enjoy!

I live with my beautiful family in the city of God. Jerusalem, Israel.

  1. Hi Mozer,

    I’m Chossidic, too. Rare to find frum bloggers, so I thought I’d drop you a line.

    May I ask if you’re still Chossidic? I presume so, but the fact you said ”I was raised in…” made me wonder if you’d since pursued a different path.

    Good luck with your semicha and I look forwards to reading some of your work!

  2. Hello Mozer! I don’t know much about Judaism, Hasidism or Kabballah, but your writing is so comforting. Your perspective is extraordinary. The way you weave the subtleties of this world and human nature together is amazing. Best wishes.
