The Boiling Point

Sam Rubanowitz
Sam Rubanowitz currently serves as Executive Producer of the Talking Point podcast, as well as Outside News Editor and Chief Video Editor of the Boiling Point. Sam joined as a staff writer at the start of 11th grade, contributing artwork also and winning awards for both writing and illustration. Last year he became BP’s first traveling correspondent, flying to Arizona to follow a Los Angeles synagogue group volunteering to help migrants arriving in the U.S. from Central America. He has written extensively on immigration and other political and governmental topics.

After taking the Computer Science course offered at Shalhevet in his junior year, Sam fell in love with programming and took his passion further by interning as a programmer at California Association of Realtors® last summer.

He is a member of three committees on the Del Rey Neighborhood Council and enjoys problem-solving and thought-provoking discussions.
