Dr. Ari Gordon is Director of Muslim-Jewish Relations for AJC, where he builds partnerships between Jews and Muslims enabling them to work together on issues of common concern and fostering productive engagement on issues of difference. His work is based on the premise that healthy Muslim-Jewish relations help both communities and strengthens the social fabric of our world. Ari is a master teacher who lectures regularly in academic, Jewish, and multifaith settings on Judaism, the history of interreligious relations, and religion in the world today. A graduate of Yeshiva University (BA 2005) and Harvard Divinity School (MTS 2010), Ari completed PhD in Islamic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where his research focused on sacred geography and interreligious relations in Islam’s formative period. Ari, who grew up in Philadelphia, is fluent in Arabic and Hebrew. He lives in Riverdale with his wonderful wife, Shuli Taubes and their little ones, Freddie and Leona.
