A fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute, Jennie Rosenfeld holds a Ph.D. in English from the City University of New York Graduate Center, where she was a Wexner Graduate Fellow, and wrote her dissertation on “Talmudic Re-readings: Toward a Modern Orthodox Sexual Ethic.”
Jennie recently made aliyah to Jerusalem with her husband and their baby daughter.
Prior to making aliyah, Jennie was co-founder and director of Tzelem, a Special Project of Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future, whose mission was to bring more educational resources in the realms of intimacy and sexuality to the Orthodox community.
After graduating from Stern College for Women, Jennie completed the Yeshiva University Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic Studies for Women, along with an MS, at the Azrieli Graduate School of Education and Administration, and went on to teach Talmud at the Yeshiva University High School for Girls.
Jennie has taught Talmud, Jewish law, and Hasidism to women in New York City, Boston, and Berkeley, and was named one of the “36 under 36” by the Jewish Week in 2008.
