Moshe Kornfeld

Moshe Kornfeld earned his Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Michigan in 2015 and then held a postdoctoral fellowship and visiting lectureship at the University of Colorado Boulder. His research takes the study of American Jews as a lens through which to analyze complicated intersections of religion, economy, and politics. His current project investigates Jewish philanthropy, service, and activism in Post-Katrina New Orleans.

Dr. Kornfeld taught a class in fall 2016, “Black-Jewish Relations in the United States.”
