Greetings from Oberlin. My name is Joshua Levy and I graduated from Oberlin in 1994 with majors in History and Judaic Studies. From Oberlin, I went to Brandeis University for a Masters (1997) and New York University for a Doctorate in Medieval Jewish History (2004). I have been working in the Admissions Office since July, 2003.
I am thrilled to be back at Oberlin. Why? Lorenzo's pizza. Movies at The Apollo, a single-screen movie theater. Concerts by world class musicians like Dave Brubeck, Denyce Graves, Marilyn Horne, the Cleveland Orchestra, Bela Fleck, or Yo-Yo Ma. Speakers like Ed Helms, Ishmael Beah, Adrian Fenty, and James McBride (all Oberlin alumni). The Allen Memorial Art Museum. Student opera or theater productions. The list is endless.
When I'm not at work, I spend most of my time with my three children -- Helen, Gabi, and Alice -- and my springer-lab-collie named Ziggy. Any down time is spend reading the newest Stephen King novel, watching TV series on Netflix, or baking something delicious and chocolatey.
I look forward to helping you learn all about what makes Oberlin so special. I hope to see you when I travel to New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Long Island.
