Itamar Goldstein


Itamar Goldstein was born in Jerusalem, Israel and raised in a nearby village. He was heavily exposed to the religious traditions of his mother's Yemenite Jewish family throughout his childhood and visited the United States regularly with his father, an American Jew. He served in the Israeli army as a young adult and then moved to Brooklyn, New York to attend medical school at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in New York City.
