Scheduling Interfaith Fellow Wendy Goldberg to lecture in your course

submitted by

Dear Augsburg Faculty,

Welcome back! I’m delighted to be in my second year as a Christensen Interfaith Fellow. I’m available to lecture in your classes throughout the school year, but this fall have very limited availability during daytime courses, so created a sign-up for you to connect with me. I generally teach the basics of Judaism, but can tailor a class to your needs related to Judaism.

Evening classes are pretty easy for me to do Monday-Thursday. For daytime hours, you can sign up for me to teach in your class through this online form:

Looking forward to connecting with you. The best ways to reach me are: or 612-386-1191
