Who Is Noach Muraff?

Noach Muraff is a Jewish man originally from Ottawa, Canada. He moved to New Haven, Connecticut back in 2008 to attend a yeshiva (a private Jewish University) where he submitted himself to the process of becoming a rabbi. Five years later, right after graduating, he was setting up his home study when he realized he desperately needed a desk for his work space. Since his Jewish culture teaches him to be frugal, he turned to Craigslist.
