ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin is a rare combination of erudite Jewish scholar and humorist, who takes ideas - but not himself - seriously. He authored a book called "Sin-a-gogue: Sin and Failure in Jewish Thought," but also issues quips and pithy observations on his Twitter feed and regular magazine humor column. In this conversation, we explore the divergent - but cohering - pols of Rabbi Bashevkin's personality, as well as his theories of education, his background, and his work as a professor at Yeshiva University and as Director of Education for NCSY.
Follow him on Twitter @dbashideas, and order Sin-a-gogue on Amazon or wherever books are sold.
