Rafi was born and lives in Jerusalem. He studied Industrial Design at Hadassah College while concurrently working towards a degree in jewish history, finishing with distinction. He is currently studying for a masters degree in Jewish Art at the Schechter Institute of Jewish Study. His work ranges from designing products for the Ministry of Defense (Studio Dea, Jerusalem) to classic Judaica for companies like Y. Swed and Azoulay Art. His work was presented in the contemporary design exhibition "dream Makers" at the Israel Museum. Rafi is continually exploring his Jewish identity, either through study of texts in yeshiva framework, script writing or working with "Gesher" to bridge the gap between secular and religious in Israeli society. This search has led Rafi to develop an interface between Jewish life and design.
