Yehuda began binding in Toronto in 1972 (when he was known as Seamas McClafferty) in an evening class with Emrys Evans.

He is largely self-taught, with constant help and encouragement from Emrys as well as Michael Wilcox and Anton Lucas.

After binding as a hobby for five years he set up as a professional in 1977. In 1986, he moved with his family to Jerusalem, where he has also established a private press, Shalom Yehuda Press.
