Dr. Avivah Zornberg
Avivah Zornberg is a charismatic writer and speaker, and a leading figure in the modern Orthodox feminist movement. The daughter of Dayan Wolf Gottlieb, of Glasgow, Scotland, she was educated at Gateshead Seminary and Cambridge University, and lectured in English Literature at the Hebrew University. She has taught at many institutions in Jerusalem, including Matan, Yakar, Pardes, and the Jerusalem College for Adults, as well as at many centres of Jewish learning throughout the world. Every year she undertakes a lecture tour of the United States and Canada. Her writings and discourses uniquely combine Torah, Midrash, the classic commentators and the Hasidic masters, with psychoanalysis, literary criticism, and philosophy. The breadth and depth of her knowledge is astonishing; listening to her is to go on a dizzying journey into the profound dynamics of the text. But it always accessible; she has a grace of manner that invites the listener to think with her. She has published five books; the most recent, published by Yale University Press, is Moses: A Human Life (2018). She is currently working on a commentary on Leviticus, to complement her commentaries on Genesis, Exodus, and Numbers.
