Roger Price was born and raised on the South Side Chicago neighborhood of Hyde Park, long before Barack Obama decided to settle there. Originally schooled in a classic Conservative congregation, Roger met and studied with Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan at Brandeis Camp Institute while a college student. He later served as the president of his congregation and, subsequently, as president of the Federation of Reconstructionist Congregations and Havurot (now, the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation). Currently, he is a member of Beth Emet, a Reform congregation in Evanston, Illinois. Over the years, Roger has taught about numerous Jewish topics in various venues including congregations, Limmud and the URJ Summer Learning Institute. Recently retired from an international law firm, he is now the Blogmaster of www.judaismandscience.com.

A true contrarian, Roger married a North Side girl, the remarkable story teller and puppeteer Marilyn Price.  He is the proud father of two and the button popping Pappy of three.
