Rabbi Dr. Reuven Kimelman specializes in the history of Judaism with a focus on the history and poetics of the Jewish liturgy.
In the field of Jewish ethics, his focus is on the ethics of war, statecraft, conflict, and genocide. He has written extensively on his mentor, Abraham Joshua Heschel.
Reuven has brought a significant contribution to our understanding of tefillah and its Kabbalistic influence with his book The Mystical Meaning of Lekhah Dodi and Kabbalat Shabbat.
