Sabrina Slipchenko was born and raised in Philadelphia. She spent a year studying religious studies in Jerusalem, before moving to Berlin to complete a degree in philosophy and politics at Bard College Berlin. Her thesis explores the relationship between body and soul in Ibn Rushd’s (re)reading of Aristotle’s “De Anima”. Currently she is a research fellow at the Kreuzberg Kollel in Berlin, a community-led Jewish studies initiative. Her main interests are Talmud, feminist theology and rationalist religious thought. In her free time, Sabrina plays bass guitar. Sometime in the future, she will travel the world as a Watson Fellow, pursuing a project on queer Orthodox Jews. Before she goes, Sabrina hopes to spend a few years studying and practicing dance.
