In this second issue of the 2017-2018 school year, we are proud to continue our commitment to providing honest, versatile, and meaningful content from a diverse array of topics. In this issue, we have published everything from a meditation on Judaism and cannabis, to an Indian-Jewish recipe, to a commentary on Biblical Isaac, to an interview with one of the most influential rabbis working in the United States. Leviathan continues to be a space where all of our staff is free to explore topics that interest them, and we hope that what continues to interest us also continues to interest our readers.
We would like to continue to extend our deepest thanks to all of the organizations, departments, and readers who have supported the work we do here at Leviathan. With the publication of this issue, we officially became a journal that has been running for forty-five years. Our lasting success over these four decades is due in no small part to the support we receive.
Moving forward, we are committed to expanding the conversation within the Jewish community and providing an open space for all students to be able to explore their thoughts in relation to Judaism. We extend an invitation to anyone who might be interested in engaging with our journal – we’d love to hear from you!
Avery and Zach
