Summer 2022 Student Rabbi

David Mahfouda (he/him) is a Rabbinical Student and Teaching Fellow at Hebrew College. Prior to matriculating at Hebrew College, David was a practicing artist and curator at the Proteus Gowanus Gallery in Brooklyn, where he co-founded the Fixers Collective, an anarchist repair community that gathered weekly to fix broken things. David was also the cofounder and CEO of Bandwagon, an environmental tech company that organized shared taxi rides from NYC airports. David really loves gathering (people), and practice (all kinds, spiritual, Jewish, athletic, artistic, etc.), and believes that both his artistic and technical inclinations stem from deep-rooted Jewish values around interdependence and redemption. In addition to rabbinical school, David loves cooking, hiking, singing, and things that sparkle in the sun — and he’s so so excited to be joining Or HaTzafon as student rabbi this summer.
