Dr. Moussaieff was born and raised in Jerusalem. Already as a child, he showed great enthusiasm for science. In fact, some of his favorite childhood heroes were scientists. His teachers in elementary school shared his enthusiasm and sent him to additional educational frameworks where he could conduct scientific experiments already as a child.
In high school he continued learning biology and chemistry. However, part of his passion and intellectual efforts were focused on philosophy and holistic medicine, realizing the limits of the scientific paradigm.
