Dalia Marx

In teaching liturgy to rabbinical students from around the world, Rabbi Dalia Marx is shaping how the next generation of rabbis interprets the tradition. A tenth-generation Jerusalemite, Marx studied at both the Jerusalem and Cincinnati campuses of Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion before her ordination in 2003. She went on to earn a PhD from Hebrew University in 2005. In 2011 she began teaching liturgy and midrash at the Jerusalem campus of HUC–JIR to Israeli students and Reform/Progressive rabbinical students from Europe and America on their required year in Israel. She is the author of two books, When I Sleep and When I Wake: On Prayers between Dusk and Dawn (2010), and A Feminist Commentary on the Babylonian Talmud (2013).
