~ The Writings of Mois Navon ~


Rabbi Mois Navon is an individual who has modeled himself on the principle of "Torah U'Madda". In the realm of Torah, Mois is a member of the Ptil Tekhelet Association where he lectures and writes extensively on the topic of tekhelet and published “Threads of Reason,” a book which delves in to various halachic and philosophic aspects of tekhelet. In addition, he has published numerous articles on Jewish topics in The Torah u-Madda Journal, Hakira, Jewish Thought, Jewish Bible Quarterly, B'Or Ha'Torah, Alei Etzion, Shofar and Chidushei Torah. Mois teaches a "Torah U’Madda" class at the Jerusalem College of Technology, as well as maintaining an outreach class on Jewish Thought, many of the shiurim being featured on YUTorah


In the realm of Madda, Mois’ professional experience in the research and development of digital hardware spans 35 years. Mois has worked for notable companies such as IBM, NASA's JPL, News Corporation's NDS, and Mobileye where he holds several patents in the field of image processing and computing hardware. Mois lectures often on the elements underpinning what makes Israel the Startup nation in "Innovation, Autonomous Vehicles and Purpose."
