A five-time NYC marathon finisher, Raphi would like to believe he is still currently writing his first book paralleling the marathon running community and the Jewish community. He has pretty much stopped trying to break into the world of stand up comedy and entertainment, especially after he was rejected from the cast of Donald Trump’s Apprentice. Finally, he does like to remember that he has an idea for a children’s educational character that will rival Sesame Street, Big Bird and Elmo.
