Sam Shonkoff

Jewish Text Educator

Sam Berrin Shonkoff is Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. He teaches and writes broadly on Jewish spirituality and culture for both academic and non-academic communities, and his scholarship focuses on German-Jewish thought, Hasidism, and Neo-Hasidism. Shonkoff is the editor of Martin Buber: His Intellectual and Scholarly Legacy (Brill), co-editor of Hasidism: Writings on Devotion, Community, and Life in the Modern World (Brandeis University Press), and author of a couple dozen articles and book chapters. His current book project investigates themes of embodiment in Buber’s Hasidic tales vis-à-vis the original sources. Above all, the question that animates his work is what it means to be truly awake and aware in this life.
