Mishy Harman is a curly-haired boy from Jerusalem. Following his military service, he graduated from Harvard College magna cum laude with highest honors in history. He then received the Harvard-Cambridge Scholarship, sending him to do an Mphil at Cambridge University (UK), which he took in archeology, researching the Iron Age origins of the pig    prohibition in Judaism. Following a stint as a teaching fellow in history and history of science back at Harvard, he returned to Jerusalem, where he is currently a doctoral student in history at the Hebrew University, as a Presidential Scholar and Hoffman Scholar. His PhD is a biography of Samuel Gobat, the very first Protestant missionary in Ethiopia. Mishy thinks that his relationship with Gobat might very well be his longest, and most stable, one to date... Mishy also co-directed the Israel Abraham Path Initiative, an international cross-cultural and interreligious ecological pilgrimage project traversing from Turkey via Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. In 2012 he was awarded Tel Aviv’s University’s Dan David Prize Scholarship, and has since been selected to the Hoffman Leadership and Responsibility Program and ROI. Last year he lived in Madison, Wisconsin, as the George L. Mosse Scholar, and is now trying to finish up his dissertation as quickly as humanly possible in order to devote all his time to his real passion - his radio show "Sipur Israeli" or "Israel Story." Mishy is the host and co-creator of this national show, which airs on Galey Tzahal in Israel and NPR in the States. It was recently profiled in the New York Times, and selected to be one of the ten best podcasts of 2014. Mishy is also an occasional contributor to The New Republic, NPR and has participated in several TEDx conferences.
