Amy Weiss, PhD, joined The Greenberg Center in January 2021, after completing a Thomas and Elissa Ellant Katz Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania’s Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, where she began working  on a book on American Jewish-evangelical relations. Her research and publications focus on the intersections of American Jewish history, Israel Studies, and Jewish-Christian relations, including her current book manuscript on American Jewish-evangelical interfaith relations and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Most recently, Amy’s articles have been published in the journals American Jewish History, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and Israel Studies, and in the edited volumes Teaching the Arab-Israeli Conflict, and Minhagim: Custom and Practice in Jewish Life.
