A Note of Thanks
Five years ago, Rabbi Bernard Zlotowitz decided that the Academy for Jewish Religion needed a journal of its own. He felt that we should contribute to the community of scholarship, sharing Torah, in all its forms, with the world at large. It is with great pride and joy that we now present to you Volume Five of Gvanim: The Journal of The Academy for Jewish Religion.
None of this would have been possible without Rabbi Zlotowitz’s persistence, care, scholarly acumen, and loving touch. In addition, his devotion to AJR and all it stands for comes through in every volume. Sadly, this will be the last volume edited by Rabbi Zlotowitz. We will miss his scholarship, his concern for detail, his kindness, and his humor. Rabbi Zlotowitz has left an indelible mark on the Academy as beloved teacher, brilliant scholar, consummate rabbi, and one who epitomizes menschlichkeit. We hope that he will continue to share his teaching with us all in conversation and in print.
At the same time, we’d like to welcome our new editor, Rabbi Joseph Prouser. Rabbi Prouser comes to us with a strong reputation as a scholar and a noted author and teacher. We look forward to his contributions to our evolving and growing journal.
