Musall, Frederek, PhD, was born 1973 in Berlin. He got an M.A from the Hochschule für Jüdische Studien, Heidelberg, in 2000, a Ph.D. from the Hochschule für Jüdische Studien Heidelberg in co-operation with Tel Aviv University, in 2005. After teaching at various European Universities (Basel, Switzerland; Graz, Austria; Halle, Germany), he is a junior professor for Jewish philosophy and history of thought at the Hochschule für Jüdische Studien in Heidelberg since 2009. He has also published several books. His particular interests are Jewish thought (he thinks reading the Rambam is much fun, though some of his students would disagree) as well as Jewish popular culture (simply in order to justify his rather large comic book collection). He desperately wants to have a vacation, because he really never had one.
