Avigdor Moore is the sixth child of nine in which he live much of his childhood travelling the country in the family van, learning Hebrew and Bible from his no-longer-Christian father, and not knowing where they would sleep each night or how they would eat. He grew up without electricity until the age of 20, and describes his childhood as more primitive than "Little House on the Prairie."
At 22, he converted, came to Israel, and started studying at Machon Maeir Yeshiva. Now married with a family of his own, he understands that faith in G-d means that you are not in charge of your own life, and cannot be certain of your own plans for tomorrow.
G-d is in the driver's seat, and you must live your life according to His plan. Strong of faith and of character, Avigdor works at building houses in Eretz Yisrael, and believes that once the People of Israel follow G-d's word, the pieces will fall into place. Perhaps because he is an outsider to Judaism and the traditional way of life, his perspective is refreshing.
