Explore the potentials, tensions, and synergies embodied in the double entendre “Text Me.” Dr. Schein is a Reconstructionist Rabbi. For twenty years he served as director of Jewish education for the Reconstructionist movement at the same time that he directed the Masters’ Program in Jewish education at Siegal College in Cleveland. He presently is the director of the Covenant Project Text Me: Ancient Jewish Wisdom Meets Contemporary Technology and senior consultant for Jewish education for the Kaplan Center for Jewish peoplehood.
