Jewish Lives Podcast Host/Producer

Jewish Lives is a prizewinning series of biography designed to explore the many facets of Jewish identity.
Individual volumes illuminate the imprint of Jewish figures upon literature, religion, philosophy, politics, cultural and economic life, and the arts and sciences. Subjects are paired with authors to elicit lively, deeply informed books that explore the range and depth of the Jewish experience from antiquity to the present.
Jewish Lives is a partnership of the Leon D. Black Foundation and Yale University Press. Learn more at www.jewishlives.org.
