Yedidya Hershberg was born on August 4, 1988 in Jerusalem, Israel, to painters Israel Hershberg and Yael Scalia.

At age 14, Hershberg began joining the Jerusalem Studio School summer programs in Italy, and by the age of 18, he joined the Jerusalem Studio School's full-time Master Class program. After completing his studies, he moved to Brooklyn, NY, where he lived and worked for 3 years. 

In 2014, Hershberg went on to attain his MFA from the University of New Hampshire. Lacking 
identification with the prospect of professorship in academia, Yedidya resolved to return to Israel and reestablish the Jerusalem Studio School.

Yedidya presently resides in Jerusalem, Israel, and is the director of the Jerusalem Studio School.
