Ethan Schwartz is a member of the second cohort of North American David Hartman Center Fellows and is a PhD candidate in Hebrew Bible at Harvard University, where his dissertation explores the literary construction of prophetic speech in the Latter Prophets. His other interests include pentateuchal composition, ancient biblical interpretation (especially at Qumran and in the New Testament), and the intellectual history of biblical studies.
Ethan is committed to bringing biblical studies into productive conversation with contemporary religious life. To that end, he has shared his academic work in a number of communal settings, including Limmud NY, the Hadar Institute, and various synagogues and churches. Ethan holds a BA in philosophy and Jewish studies from the University of Chicago and an MA in Hebrew Bible from the Jewish Theological Seminary.
Ethan lives in Chicago with his wife, Rabbanit Leah Sarna.
