Before launching Angela Roskop Erisman Editorial, I served as Managing Director of Hebrew Union College Press, and Editorial Director at The Marginalia Review of Books. I earned my M.A. in Hebrew and Northwest Semitics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (1998) and my Ph.D. in Bible and Ancient Near East from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (Cincinnati 2008). In addition to teaching Hebrew language and Bible courses at HUC-JIR, Xavier University (Cincinnati), and the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research, I have worked as Production Manager of Hebrew Studies and Bulletin of Hebrew Higher Education, as a developmental editor for college-level textbooks, and as a freelance editor and writing coach for students and scholars in all areas of Jewish Studies.
When not studying Torah or polishing prose, I cook, do calligraphy, take photographs, play the violin, drink my husband’s gin, and teach my son how to live the good life.
