Welcome the KosherSheik, the newest Oy-Bay’ster!

The Kosher Sheik

I’m really thrilled to annouce the latest edition to the Oy Bay team! I’ve known KosherSheik since high school, when we served together on the Bay Area regional board of our Jewish youth group. He’s a hilarious fun-loving guy, with a sharp mind and an unparalleled patriotism for Calfornia, NorCal, the Yay Area, and San Francisco (HaShem help you if you say ‘Frisco’ or ‘Cali’ in his presence!). Oh yeah, and he’s kosher. REALLY kosher.

The KosherSheik is as San Franciscan as they come. Born and raised in the City, his life has pretty much been confined to SF. As an alumnus of Lawton School (SF), Abraham Lincoln High School (SF), and San Francisco State University (obviously SF), this guy lives and breathes SF.

After living in San Francisco for 23 years he unfortunately left the city in 2005 to pursue a JD at the Seattle University School of Law. After two years of law school and reppin’ the Yay Area hard up in the Northwest, the Sheik will return to the Oy Bay Area indefinitely because he was granted approval to complete his last year of law school as a visiting student at Santa Clara University.

The Sheik is a law clerk for Kletter & Peretz in the Embarcadero and has recently completed service at the Ronald A. Peterson Immigration Law Clinic at Seattle University.

This Mexican-Moroccan Sephardic Jew-Sultan was a regional newsletter editor of BBYO his junior year of high school and then went on to become the regional president of BBYO his senior year of high school. He was the founding president of the first and only chapter of a Jewish college fraternity in the city of San Francisco (Alpha Epsilon Pi) at infamous San Francisco State University.

The Sheik loves: SAN FRANCISCO, the bay area, coffee, food, locals, the Giants, the 49ers, the Warriors, the Sharks, Israel, Morocco, Mexico and a variety of other things.
