Lisa N. Goldman

I am a Canadian-Israeli freelance journalist, based in Tel Aviv. I write about everything from art exhibitions and Tel Aviv clubs to suicide bombings and Palestinian refugee camps. In between I try – with intermittent success – to illustrate the complex human dimension of the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Before moving to Israel in 2000, I lived in New York for 10 years – studying, working and generally inhaling that incredibly exciting city. But now Tel Aviv, which I think is one of the most dynamic and fascinating cities in the world, has captured my heart. I blog about life in Israel at On the Face.
