This is the home page for Justin Jaron Lewis, at the University of Manitoba. Welcome to my world.
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Religion, and some of my courses also count for credit in Judaic Studies or Central and East European Studies. I teach Religion and Sexuality, Storytelling and Religion, and most of our department’s courses on Judaism. For the most recent course listings see Teaching.
My research is mostly about storytelling and Judaism, usually both at the same time. See Research for updates on my work in progress. Most of my published work can be accessed at researchgate.net or academia.edu. I maintain two other WordPress sites for specific projects: Thoughts On Death (Menakhem Oldendorf, 1504), a gem of early Yiddish literature; and, with independent scholar Judy Barrett, The Aramaic Language of the Zohar.
