Charlotte Fonrobert is Associate Professor of Religious Studies and, by courtesy, of Classics and of German Studies. She specializes in Judaism: talmudic literature and culture. Her interests include gender in Jewish culture; the relationship between Judaism and Christianity in Late Antiquity; the discourses of orthodoxy versus heresy; the connection between religion and space; and rabbinic conceptions of Judaism with respect to GrecoRoman culture. Ari Y Kelman is the inaugural Jim Joseph Professor of Education and Jewish Studies in the Graduate School of Education, where he directs the Concentration in Education and Jewish Studies.  He is an affiliate of the Taube Center for Jewish Studies and the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity, a member of the American Studies Committee-in-Charge, and, by courtesy, a professor of Religious Studies.  He is the author of Station Identification: A Cultural History of Yiddish Radio, the editor of Is Diss a System: a Milt Gross Comic Reader, and the co-author of Sacred Strategies: Transforming Congregations from Functional to Visionary, which won a National Jewish Book Award.  He is the co-author of a number of influential studies of contemporary Jewish identity and culture covering topics from Israel to the internet.  He is continuing his scholarship at the intersection between religion and education primarily in non-scholastic settings.  At Stanford, he and his wife (and children) serve as the Resident Fellows for Twain House, an all-frosh dormitory.
