Rabbi Jonah Chanan Steinberg, PhD
email@example.com ext 232
Born in Canada and raised in downtown Toronto and overseas in Vienna, Austria, Jonah learned early—amid lingering shadows of intolerance and bright multicultural hopes on both sides of the sea—to rejoice in Jewish identity and to value communities that celebrate diversity. Jonah received his BA at Brown University, and his MA, MPhil. and PhD. in Religion at Columbia University. While still a graduate student, he became Visiting Instructor of Talmud and Rabbinics at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York, taught at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies of the American Jewish University in California as a Finkelstein Fellow, and headed the program in Rabbinic Literature and Civilization at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Pennsylvania. He then joined the founding faculty of the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College, where he became Associate Dean and completed his own rabbinic training. Jonah has received the New Scholar Award from Harvard’s Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion and has published articles exploring ancient innovations in rabbinic sources and traditions, and ways in which this legacy can inspire us to meet the challenges of our own times.
