About the Author

Dr. Dan Mendelsohn Aviv has been engaged in Jewish learning as an educator, lecturer, professor, and published scholar for almost twenty years. Having spent three years creating an alternative model for informal education, he recently returned to his greatest passion-classroom instruction at the Toronto Heschel School. He is also an itinerant blogger and loves his MacBook almost as much as he loves his darling Noaand and his children Maayan, Heala, and Tal.
