Daniel Gordis, born July 5, 1959, in New York City is Senior Vice President of the Shalem Center, where he is also a senior fellow. The author of numerous books on Jewish thought and currents in Israel, Dr. Gordis was the founding dean of the Ziegler Rabbinical School at the University of Judaism, the first rabbinical college on the West Coast of the United States. Dr. Gordis joined Shalem in 2007 to help found Israel’s first liberal arts college, after spending nine years as vice president of the Mandel Foundation in Israel and director of its Leadership Institute.

Since moving to Israel in 1998, Dr. Gordis has written and lectured throughout the world on Israeli society and the challenges facing the Jewish state. His writing has appeared in magazines and newspapers including The New York Times, The The New Republic, The New York Times Magazine, Moment, Tikkun, and Conservative Judaism. His latest book, Saving Israel: How the Jewish State Can Win a War That May Never End was published by Wiley in March 2009 and won the 2009 National Jewish Book Award under the Contemporary Jewish Life and Practice category. He is presently at work on a volume about 19th- and 20th-century rabbinic responsa on conversion, which he is writing together with Rabbi David Ellenson of the Hebrew Union College, and another volume on Zionism and its contribution to international discourse on ethnicity and the nation-state.

Dr. Gordis received his B.A. from Columbia College (magna cum laude), a master's degree and rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California.

Daniel Gordis is commonly cited on issues of Jewish law and medical ethics.
