Arie Hasit immigrated to Israel in 2005 upon completing his B.A. at Harvard University, where he studied Israel history and served as a staff writer for the Harvard Political Review. While he has devoted most of his professional life to Jewish education, he also served in the IDF Spokesperson Division as a liaison to North American press, and has spent a great deal of his time following and chronicling the Israeli hip hop scene. He is currently studying at the rabbinical seminary at Machon Schechter while serving as the student rabbi for NOAM, the Masorti (Conservative) movement's youth group in Israel.
