Dr. Jon Greenberg is one of the very few living biblical and talmudic ethnobotanists. He is often consulted by rabbis and other scholars for his broad knowledge of this area. Dr. Greenberg received his bachelor’s degree with honors in biology from Brown University and his master’s and doctorate in agronomy from Cornell University. He has also studied with Rabbi Chaim Brovender at Israel’s Yeshivat Hamivtar and conducted research on corn, alfalfa, and soybeans at Cornell, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Cancer Research. Since 1989, he has been a science teacher and educational consultant. Dr. Greenberg was Senior Editor of science textbooks at Prentice Hall Publishing Co. Previously on the faculty of Yeshivas Ohr Yosef, the School of Education at Indiana University, and the University of Phoenix, he has taught at the Heschel School since 2008. He is a frequent speaker at synagogues, schools, and botanical gardens. Dr. Greenberg is the author of TorahFlora.org and can be contacted at [email protected].
Summer 2021If the public health situation permits, I am planning an East coast Torah Flora speaking tour for this summer. I expect to leave the New York area in late June, travel down the East coast to Washington, DC, and then travel through Virginia to Asheville, NC, Nashville, TN, and possibly Memphis before returning some time in July. If you would like to arrange an event on this speaking tour, please contact me at [email protected]. Information about events on this tour will be listed here as it becomes available.
