Timna Hurwich

Timna Hurwich is a personal trainer, sometime writer and erstwhile teacher, with a passion for literature and old books. Raised in Israel, Timna is a self-described "intertextual thinker," who earned a BA in English from Bar Ilan University, where she first turned a literary lens on the Bible - and a biblical lens on literature. At the time of this writing, she still refuses to buy a Kindle and keeps a supply of pens and legal pads in her nightstand drawer.
