Shevach Rabbinic Intern/Slivka Fellow
Jonathan Posner is a rabbinical student at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City. Originally from Chicago, Jonathan developed and piloted SVARA: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva's Full-Time program, along with Rosh Yeshivah Rabbi Benay Lappe, prior to entering JTS. Before pursuing a career in the rabbinate, Jonathan cooked professionally in Chicago at several high end restaurants as well as during his college years.
Jonathan received his BA from Kalamazoo College in Michigan in English Literature and Journalism with a concentration in Media Studies. He currently intends on getting his MA from JTS in Talmud. In addition to his love of rabbinic text, Jonathan brings a deep love of Tephilah, Liturgy, and creating rich communities to campus and is thrilled to begin working with Shevach to strengthen Cornell's egalitarian Jewish community on campus.
