About the Authors

Russ Shulkes is Executive Director of Hillels of Georgia and is  ThinkJudaism’s resident Leibowitz expert/anti-mystic. An ordained rabbi, he  has an MA in Western Religions and taught comparative religion at FIU before plunging into full-time Hillel work.He enjoys long walks on the beach, ice cream, and logic. If for whatever reason you wish to contact him, please email him at russ@emoryhillel.org.

Yitzchak Sprung is a student in Yeshiva University’s Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, and an SAR High School/Yeshiva University Beit Midrash Fellow. He previously studied law at Bar Ilan University and spent two years at Yeshivat Birkat Moshe in Maale Adumim. Unlike Russ, he lacks significant training in Jewish law or thought, so please treat him with some warranted suspicion.

If you’d like to submit a guest post or response, please contact Yitzchak on Facebook or Twitter.
