Sheldon Lewis was born in Chicago and educated at the University of Chicago and the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City, where he received his rabbinic ordination. He is rabbi emeritus of Congregation Kol Emeth in Palo Alto, which he served for thirty-three years. Along with an abiding interest in reconciliation efforts in the Middle East, he has been deeply involved in interfaith work to promote mutual respect and common cause; and he has been committed to nurturing bonds among the streams of Jewish expression.
