Ethan Schwartz graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the College of the University of Chicago in 2012, double-majoring in Jewish studies and philosophy. During the year following his graduation, Ethan participated in the Tikvah Fellowship in New York. For his Fellowship project, he wrote a paper about philosophical elements in the work of twentieth-century Yiddish author Chaim Grade, bringing Grade's short story "My Quarrel with Hersh Rasseyner" into conversation with Leo Strauss. In the coming year, Ethan will be pursuing an MA in Hebrew Bible at the Jewish Theological Seminary, after which he hopes to pursue doctoral work in modern Jewish thought. A participant in the 2012 Enduring Questions seminar, he is very excited to be returning to the program as Director of Student Life this summer.
