Building a vibrant, intellectually honest, and ethically sensitive Jewish world.
The Ancient, Accessible
The study of the Bible and Judaism in the academy has revolutionized our understanding of the meaning and history of our books and traditions. One of my main goals is to make this study accessible to non-specialists.
Keeping Judaism Relevant
I spent more than a decade in yeshiva studies. My goal in working on halakha is to ensure that Jewish law is relevant and ethically valid in its contemporary context, while remaining authentic to its traditional roots.
Israel, Religion, & Politics
I have been a Zionist since my youth and currently live in one of Modern Israel's oldest cities. At the same time, I see where Israel struggles morally and I try to think about creative ways we can improve.
