Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo
Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo is the author of Judaism On Trial: An Unconventional Discussion about Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel and Thoughts to Ponder: Daring Observations about the Jewish Tradition.
Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo, Dean of the David Cardozo Academy for Jewish Studies and Human Dignity, lectures regularly at over fifty institutions of Jewish and secular learning around the world. He is often hosted by programs with affiliation ranging from the Orthodox Union and Union of Sephardic Communities to Oxford and Harvard Universities. Regarded by many as a type of ambassador of conscience, he has, over the past twenty-five years, attracted a large number of students with his unconventional style. His fresh approach to many topics of social concern and his unswerving honesty continue to engage Jews and non-Jews alike.
Rabbi Cardozo studied at the Center for Advanced Rabbinical Studies of Rabbi Unterman and at the Mir Yeshiva, receiving rabbinical ordination from Gateshead Talmudic Academy. He also holds a Doctorate in philosophy. Author of The Torah as God's Mind, The Infinite Chain, Between Silence and Speech, and The Written and Oral Torah, Rabbi Cardozo pens many essays on Judaism and prepares a popular weekly Internet column called "Thoughts to Ponder." He resides in Jerusalem with his wife, children and grandchildren.
