Introduction Jeremiah (Jerry) Haber is the nom de plume of Charles H. Manekin, an orthodox Jewish studies and philosophy professor, who divides his time between Israel and the US.
Interests Why do I write under a nom de plume? Not because I am afraid of being hounded, like Norman Finkelstein -- thank God, I have tenure. But because I want to keep my academic persona and my polemical persona distinct. Writing under a nom de plume allows me to be more "unbuttoned." Maybe that's a copout; maybe not.
