Daniel Herskowitz

The Stanley A. and Barbara B. Rabin Postdoctoral Research Fellow.

Dr. Daniel Herskowitz graduated from the Department of Theology and Religion in the University of Oxford in 2018 (member of Wolfson College). His dissertation, titled “Which God will Save Us? Jewish Receptions of Martin Heidegger’s Philosophy”, examines central Jewish encounters with Heidegger’s philosophy and argues that Heidegger is a key reference point in the negotiation of the boundaries between Judaism, Christianity, and secularism in twentieth century Jewish thought. During his DPhil research, he has received several fellowships and awards, including The Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe Fellowship for Jewish Studies, The Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme, the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture Award, and the Association for Jewish Studies Dissertation Completion Fellowship. His articles have been published or accepted for publication in various peer-reviewed journals, including Modern Theology, Journal of Religion, New German Critique, Jewish Quarterly Review, International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, AJS Review, and Journal of Jewish Thought and Philosophy.
