As a professor of liturgy at the Jerusalem campus of Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion, where students from around the world learn to become Reform rabbis, Dalia Marx is helping to shape how a new generation approaches prayer. The tenth generation of her family to be born and raised in Jerusalem, Marx studied at both the Jerusalem and Cincinnati campuses of Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion before her ordination in 2003. She then studied at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, where she earned her PhD 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. Marx 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).
