I take great pride in introducing Dr. Warren Hoffman, the new Executive Director of the Association for Jewish Studies. Dr. Hoffman comes to AJS with more than thirteen years of experience in Jewish Studies, Jewish education, and Jewish cultural programming. The recipient of a doctorate in American Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz, Warren Hoffman is the author of two scholarly books, The Great White Way: Race and the Broadway Musical (2014) and The Passing Game: Queering Jewish American Culture (2009). A playwright and the founder of the Philadelphia Jewish Music Festival, he has also taught Jewish Studies and English at St. Joseph's University, the University of Delaware, Hunter College, and Temple University, where he also sits on the Advisory Board of the Feinstein Center for American Jewish History. I know that our members join me in extending a warm welcome to AJS Executive Director Warren Hoffman.
