Kenneth Hart Green, a BAYT member, is Associate Professor of Modern Jewish Religious Thought in the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto. He has published several books and numerous articles, on figures from Yehuda Halevi to Gershom Scholem. His most recent books, both published by the University of Chicago Press, are two companion volumes: Leo Strauss on Maimonides: The Complete Writings, which he edited, annotated, and introduced; and Leo Strauss and the Rediscovery of Maimonides, which he authored. His current work is focused on two projects: a book on the post-Holocaust thought of Emil Fackenheim; and a “Maimonidean Meditation” on the biblical figure of Moses.
