Dr. Tamar Marvin is a scholar, writer, and educator currently based in Los Angeles. She holds a Ph.D. in Medieval and Early Modern Jewish Studies from the Jewish Theological Seminary, a B.A. in Literature and Journalism from New York University, and is currently a student in the semicha program at Yeshivat Maharat. She has taught in a number of university and Jewish settings, including American Jewish University, Hebrew Union College, and the Wexner Heritage Foundation, and published her work in academic and broader media. Tamar is particularly interested in the theory and codification of halakhah, the transmission of texts and traditions, and Jewish theology.

She believes that magic happens when people encounter Jewish text—that this process is transformative and generative both for them and for Judaism.
