On being Jewish

  • Became dual U.S.-Israeli citizen in 2018 (see article)
  • Oy Chicago,¬†Interview with Jewish pitcher Jon Moscot, by Jeremy Fine¬†(11/21/2016):
    • “I grew up in Santa Monica, California with two younger brothers and an amazing family. I was brought up in the Orthodox temple and was very busy in the community with Boy Scouts as well as playing on many baseball travel teams.”
    • “My father was born into an extremely Orthodox Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York in the ’50s. He and his brother attended Yeshiva and spent a large portion of their lives in Israel. Being raised Jewish, to me, has provided me with an unbelievable support group from not only my family, but friends and other Jews across the globe. Judaism is my belief, it’s my culture and my heritage and it has molded me into the person I am today. The reason I try and stand out in the community is due to the Torah’s teachings and wanting to make a difference in others’ lives. Being Jewish is a special thing.”
    • “My uncle and cousins live in Jerusalem and Efrat respectively. I have been once, I traveled once with my dad when I was 8 years old. My grandparents were buried there, but that was a long time ago and I don’t remember as much as I would like. I plan on going back in the next few years and staying for a couple of weeks.”
