Curriculum Vitae

Daniel Ross Goodman holds a Ph.D. in Jewish Thought from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS) in New York and studied English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. He is the author of three books: Somewhere Over the Rainbow: Wonder and Religion in American Cinema; the novel A Single Life; and Soloveitchik’s Children: Irving Greenberg, David Hartman, Jonathan Sacks, and the Future of Jewish Theology in America (forthcoming from the University of Alabama Press in 2023). An ordained rabbi as well, he is also the author of numerous articles, essays, and reviews on religion, theology, Jewish-Christian relations, film, art, and literature. 


Rabbi Dr. Goodman is researching issues related to Jewish views of the holiness of the land, with an eye toward developing a theology of the holiness of the land from a Jewish perspective that will lead to a mutual understanding of Jewish and Christian theologies of the holiness of the land within the University of Salzburg’s „Developing a Theology of Interreligious Dialogue from a Jewish-Christian Perspective“ project.
