Abstract

Glazer received his Ph.D. in Hebrew Hermeneutics from the University of Toronto. During his studies he immersed himself in the philosophical work of Emmanuel Levinas and the Talmud under the direction of Dr. Robert Gibbs. This intellectual background informed Glazer's work across academic forums on Jewish philosophy in relation to spirituality, mysticism, and aesthetics. Now an independent scholar, Glazer's efforts focus on serving the broader Jewish community by incorporating Jewish Mysticism and Hebrew Poetry into theological and academic conversations regarding contemporary intellectual trends in Judaism. Glazer is currently the Senior Rabbi at Congregation Beth Sholom, San Francisco, CA.
