Juan Mejía, Rabbi in residence of B'chol Lashon, understands that hundreds of thousands of people around the globe are connecting to Jewish wisdom and community through the Internet—and most of them are not Jewish. He is opening a conversation about both the promises and perils for Jewish peoplehood in the face of this new phenomenon.
Join Rabbi Juan Mejía in a conversation with Dan Libenson of Judaism Unbound, as they discuss the changing nature of the "Who Is a Jew" debate in this new digital age.
Rabbi Juan Mejía was born in Bogotá, Colombia. Raised a Catholic, he converted to Judaism after discovering the powerful beauty and message of Judaism. Rabbi Mejía holds a degree in philosophy from Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and a masters degree in Jewish civilization from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Rabbi Mejía was ordained in 2009 by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York. He serves as Rabbi in Residence for Be'chol Lashon, and teaches Judaism to everyone (mostly in Spanish) through his website.
