Judaic Studies

Office: FA 347

My research is divided between investigations of Jewish responses to modern thought and studies of modern thinkers' assessments of the Jews and Judaism. I am particularly interested in the attempts of modern Jewish rationalists to explain their continued adherence to Judaism. Recently I have been focusing more on Israeli and American Jewish intellectuals' conceptions of the tension between liberalism and Zionism. My courses focus primarily on modern Jewish history and thought.
