We are pleased to announce that two upcoming scholars, Dov Honick and Sarah Snider, will be joining us for the duration of Sukkot. They will be present at all our festive meals in the Sukkah and will be available to give a number of lectures and shorter talks.
Sarah Snider is Clinical Assistant Professor of Writing at NYU-Shanghai, where she co-chairs the Creative Writing program. Her current project is a collection-in-progress of interconnected creative nonfiction and lyric essay about Orthodox Jewish identity. Alongside her academic and creative work, Sarah recently completed a 5-year stint on the Michiana Jewish Film Festival Committee and plays recreational ice hockey.
