David Ben Moshe

David Ben Moshe is an 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. After his release he underwent an Orthodox Jewish Conversion at B’nai Israel Synagogue in Baltimore Maryland and became a successful personal trainer. He has a B.S. in Exercise Science, Magna Cum Laude. 

After finishing his degree, he was prevented from attending Graduate School due to his criminal record. Following this disappointment he moved to Israel, where he has spent the last 3 years fighting for citizenship - an automatic right for all Jews including converts. Despite the challenges he has faced David remains an ardent Zionist.

David currently writes and speaks about Black-Jewish relationships, fitness, Israel and criminal justice reform. His writing has been featured on Newsweek, Medium and The Jerusalem Post. He has spoken for groups across North America, Europe and Israel. 

His amazing story of positive transformation has been covered by The Baltimore Jewish Times, JMore Living, Ynet, Tablet Magazine, The Jerusalem Post, Haaretz and Kan. He lives in Be’er Sheva with his wife and two children.
