Dr. Labendz’s area of specialization is Jewish Studies, and her research focuses on ancient Jewish literature and religion. Her first book, Socratic Torah: Non-Jews in Rabbinic Intellectual Culture (Oxford, 2013), examines Late Antique rabbinic literature’s attitudes and discourse about non-Jews. Her current research project is on rabbinic eschatology and addresses why and how the rabbis of the Talmud talked about the end of the world. Dr. Labendz studied at Barnard College, Hebrew University, and the Jewish Theological Seminary, and has taught at various colleges in New York and New Jersey. Dr. Labendz currently teaches Survey of the World’s Religions, Hebrew Bible, and Judaism.
