Dr. David Borabeck
Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. David Borabeck is a historian who engages with Jewish and Israeli
history in the Twentieth Century. His research focuses on religious
Zionism and the mutual relations it has with other groups - mainly Oriental
Jews and Palestinian Muslims. Through this discussion, Borabeck seeks to
engage in topics such as religion, nationalism, ethnicity and secularism
and shed new light on the establishment of the concept of religion in the
Israeli public and its early history.
Borabeck wrote his PhD dissertation, entitled "Religions must Exist within
a Country": the Ministry of Religions and the Establishment of Religion in
the State of Israel, 1948-1958," in the Department of History of the People
of Israel at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. He currently serves as a
research fellow at the Haifa Laboratory for Religious Studies at Haifa
University and a college lecturer.
