David Mahfouda
Potato Roaster, Poet, Mystic

David (he/him) received an A.B. in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard University, and an M.E. in Product Architecture and Engineering from Stevens Institute. 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, a technology company that facilitated shared taxi rides from NYC airports. David really loves gathering (people), and practice (all kinds, spiritual, Jewish, artistic, etc.), and believes that both his artistic and technical inclinations stem from deep-rooted Jewish values toward collective interdependence and return, and a Jewish sensibility about what might redeem the lives we’ve been given to live out on our one earth. He loves cooking and singing and things that sparkle in the sun, and he’s very excited to be teaching at the intersection of Judaism and artistic practice as a Hebrew College / IYUN Fellow.
