About

A sparrow, "dror" in Hebrew, with the word "Dror" written in ancient Hebrew script, and "Anduraru" (freedom) in Akkadian cuneiform.

Sparrow, "Dror" in Hebrew, which also means "freedom". Top: "Dror" in ancient Hebrew script. Bottom: "Anduraru" in Akkadian cuneiform.

The Hebrew word Dror, which means freedom and serves as my first name (among other things), is derived from the ancient Akkadian word Anduraru, which means setting a slave free.

I was born in 1975 in Tel Aviv, Israel. I studied Linguistics at the Tel Aviv University and also Arabic and Middle Eastern studies at Givat Haviva.
