Nate Orbach

Born in 1999, Nate was raised in Newton, Massachusetts and attended Tufts University, where he earned a B.A. in English, with minors in Arabic and Biological Anthropology. After graduating, Nate moved to Jerusalem to work as an editor at +972 Magazine through the NIF/Shatil Social Justice Fellowship. There, he profiled members of Knesset and wrote about the influence of conservative American politics on Israel’s ascendant right wing. In addition to his interest in the political world, Nate has been an avid cook from a young age and, during his senior year of college, completed an independent study focusing on the role of food and cooking in human evolutionary history, designing and carving stone tools and recreating some of the earliest forms of alcohol made by humans. Nate is passionate about building community and hopes to use both his language and his culinary skills to create micro-communities centered on shared language and delicious food. He is fluent in Hebrew and conversant in Arabic.
