Text study classes and creative writing classes with Kendell Pinkney
Kendell Pinkney is Brooklyn-based theatre maker, Jewish educator, and rabbinical student at the Jewish Theological Seminary.

Kendell is a Wexner Graduate Fellow/Davidson Scholar, and ultimately hopes to use his rabbinate, theatre training, and academic interests, to teach, make art, and create programs that will both engage artists and non-artists in seriously playful, Jewish text-study.
