Biographical Note

Professor Arthur Green is an authority on Jewish spirituality and mysticism. He was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1968 and cofounded the Havurat Shalom movement in the same year. Green earned his doctorate at Brandeis University in 1975 and taught at the University of Pennsylvania for eleven years until he became the Dean of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC). A few years later, he became president of the RRC. His primary focus has been in study, work, and teaching students, and as a result, he resigned from the presidency and was appointed Philip D. Lown Professor of Jewish Thought at Brandeis University in 1993. He is currently Dean of the Hebrew College Rabbinical School and Professor Emeritus of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies at Brandeis University.
