    Rabbi Wayne Dosick, Ph.D., is the award-winning author of The Real Name of God: Embracing the Full Essence of the Divine, and eight previous critically acclaimed books, including the now-classic Living Judaism. He is an educator, writer, an adjunct professor of Jewish Studies at San Diego University, and the spiritual guide for the Elijah Minyan in San Diego. Rabbi Dosick has been described as a "rational intellect with the soul of a mystic," and has been called "one of the most gifted teachers of our generation, who understands the mindset, needs, and yearnings of people, and responds to this intellectual and inner searching in peerless fashion."
