Benjamin Guggenheim

Benjamin Guggenheim is a student at Yeshivat Ma’ale Gilboa. Growing up near Washington, DC, he found himself the heretic among Orthodox Jews and the zealot among the Modernist Jews, a dichotomy he explores in much of his writing. He is currently working on a collection of fiction to be called “Lament for Crowns and Crowds.”
