David is no stranger to the front lines of protest. In 2017, he was arrested in New York City as part of demonstrations against then-President Donald Trump’s policies barring refugees from several Muslim countries. Just last month, he found himself protesting while on sabbatical in Israel, joining thousands of other Israelis marching in opposition to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s proposed judicial changes.
