Moshe Averick received his ordination as an orthodox Rabbi in 1980. He has taught theology and spirituality for nearly 30 years to Jews of all ages, ranging from high school to adult education. Many of his students have gone on to become educators and rabbinic leaders in North America, England, and Israel. He is known for his singular ability to explain complex topics in clear, understandable language and - to borrow the description of one University of Chicago-trained philosopher of science - his "wicked" sense of humor. He supervised educational programs at UCLA and Northridge University on behalf of Yeshiva University of Los Angeles under the auspices of the renowned Simon Wiesenthal Center and in Toronto, Ontario, was among the founding faculty members of what is now one of North America's largest Jewish adult education centers, Aish Hatorah of Toronto. His lectures in Jewish Thought at the Shalavim Rabbinical Seminary in Israel were enthusiastically received for 12 years before he moved back to Chicago in 2007. Besides his career as an educator, Averick was a floor trader in the S&P pit at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and wrote and produced an album of spiritual acoustic rock, Feet on the Ground, which was described by Jerusalem Post music critic David Brinn as, " superb, country-tinged acoustic rock...in the great tradition of such seminal artists as Tom Rush and John Prine...a real find in our own backyard!" He is the proud father and grandfather of eight children and nine grandchildren.Nonsense of a High Order: The Confused and Illusory World of the Atheist - Averick's eloquent and pithy retort to New Atheism - was published in 2010. He has lectured on the subject of atheism and belief in God at universities and colleges for both secular and religious student organizations.
