Back in seminary, I was Dave Diewert’s TA in Intro to Biblical Hebrew.
Teaching Hebrew, for Dave, is really more of a side-gig. Most of the time, he stays involved with community organizing in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver (also known as “Canada’s poorest postal code”). Of particular interest to me is his work in solidarity with chemically dependent people for radical harm reduction strategies such as safe-injection sites.
Here is an interview with Dave on the Mark Hasiuk Show. Worth a watch.
