Dr. Krell's research interests include Jewish-Christian Relations, Modern Jewish Thought, Post-Holocaust Theology, and Postmodern constructions of Jewish identity. He has taught courses in the Hebrew Bible, Jewish Thought and Culture, Jewish Mysticism, Jewish-Christian Relations, Modern Jewish Thought, and Jewish Responses to the Holocaust. He is especially interested in examining the Jewish encounter with modern Christian culture by integrating the study of modern Jewish theology with the cultural study of Jewish identity.
