From Incarceration to Redemption
David Ben Moshe is a writer, inspirational speaker, and expert fitness coach whose life is a testament to the power of positive change. While serving a prison sentence for selling drugs and guns, he decided to build a better life. He became a successful personal trainer, eventually owning a fitness studio in Baltimore, Maryland. He has a B.S. in Exercise Science, Magna Cum Laude, from Towson University. David underwent an Orthodox Jewish Conversion at B'nai Israel Synagogue, one of the oldest synagogues in the United States.
After finishing his degree, he was prevented from starting his clinical doctorate in physical therapy at the University of Florida due to his criminal record. Following this disappointment, he moved to Israel and studied at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, where he won a prestigious Social Justice Fellowship.
Now he is fighting for Israeli citizenship - an automatic and instant right for all Jews, including converts, which he has been denied since 2018. Despite the challenges he has faced in the country, David is an ardent Zionist and a vocal proponent supporting Israel’s right to exist and flourish.
An internationally sought-out speaker, David has spoken for groups across North America, Europe, and Israel. He currently lives in Be'er Sheva with his wife and two children and spends his time writing and coaching.
He is also pursuing a Master's degree in Journalism from NYU and writing a memoir chronicling his incredible journey.
