Tom Weiss was born into Congregation Bnai Jeshurun and raised on the Westside of Manhattan, in a progressive, politically active family. Tom wanted to see Israel from left to right politically and religiously, so he could make his own decisions, so he went to Bravender's HaMivtar Yeshiva in Efrat & Aish HaTorah in the Old City of Jerusalem. He began to keep Shabbat, while working with the French to head english productions at ISRA-TV, in broadcasting.
Tom went to Butler University for Radio/TV & New Media, beginning his broadcast career, and was the voice of Maccabiah 'Jewish Olympic' games in Israel. He also put a lot of time into creating a television network connectively named the American Israel Broadcasting Company -- AIBC-TV, and doing many voice-overs throughout Israel.
