About

Hi, I’m Drew Kaplan and welcome to my personal website!
I write a lot – or at least aspire to write quite a bit. However, there’s only so much time in the day and so much to do.

I was born and raised in central Ohio, before going away to college, beginning and finishing at Indiana University – Bloomington, having attended Yeshiva University and Yeshivat Ohr Somayach in between. Following university, I moved to New York City, where I attended and had a wonderful time at Yeshivat Chovevei Torah rabbinical school.

Having graduated, I then headed west to Long Beach, California, where I worked for 6.5+ years as a rabbi for college students and young adults. Having left that job, I have mostly been taking care of my kids and doing a fair amount of writing (but not as much as I would like to be doing).
