Dr. Julie Goldstein

"Portrait of a Lady: Imagining Queen Esther in Jewish Art"
Dr. Julie Goldstein is the Rosh Midrasha/Director of Amudim, a new Shana baAretz program for women designed to engage them with Jewish texts in the fullest possible way, from both traditional and academic perspectives, where no question or source is off the table and students are encouraged to think for themselves.

Dr. Goldstein's teaching experience includes three years at the undergraduate level at NYU, fifteen years at Ma’ayanot High School, three years as a JLIC scholar-in-residence at UCLA, and nearly two decades of Jewish communal and adult education lectures. Dr. Goldstein received an MA in Jewish philosophy at YU and a joint PhD in medieval history and Judaic Studies at NYU. In 2013-14, she was a Golda Meir postdoctoral fellow at The Hebrew University and a research fellow at The Global Research Institute at Tel Aviv University.

Dr. Goldstein has received a number of awards, including fellowships from Cardozo’s Center for Jewish Law and Civilization and The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture. She recently made aliyah and lives in Beit Shemesh with her husband, Rabbi Uri Goldstein, the former Rabbi of Ahavat Achim in Fair Lawn, and five children.

Dr. Goldstein will speak after kiddush.
