Shalem Fellowship

I have received a Shalem Center fellowship for next year. As a fellow I shall be researching the reception of Greek political/ philosophic idealism among medieval thinkers, particularly Rambam and Averroes. Other fellows include my friends Rory Schachter, Aaron Tugendhaft, and Natan Sharansky. Our interests differ among us, but it is through our differences that we can make the world a better place.

While my work will involve a close reading of Maimonides and Averroes, according to the Jerusalem Post, "Sharansky will go back to doing what he did for nine years in a Soviet prison and what many believe he does best: sitting and thinking."

Your brother gets into college and he gets multiple congratulations, while you get none for your fellowship. You are so not the favorite Halper in these parts.
