Justin Jaron Lewis is a rabbi and professor of Jewish Studies, teaching in the Judaic Studies Program and the Department of Religion, University of Manitoba. He is the author of Imagining Holiness: Classic Hasidic Tales in Modern Times, and translator of Many Pious Women, a Yiddish work from Renaissance Italy in praise of women. He has been conducting interviews with Winnipeggers who knew Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, for the Winnipeg Jewish Renewal Oral History Collection archived on the website of the University of Colorado.

He thanks the Kaufman Silverberg Library for including a book of letters to and from Professor Leibowitz in its collection.
