Stanley M. Wagner (January 4, 1932 – February 23, 2013) was an Orthodox rabbi, academic, author, and community leader in the United States. He received his semikhah at Yeshiva University in 1956 and there earned a doctorate in Jewish history and Hebrew literature and five other post-graduate degrees. His 1964 doctoral dissertation, "a study of talmudic terms and categories for deviant religious behavior" was titled Religious Non-Conformity in Ancient Jewish Life. He worked at universities in Lexington, Kentucky (1957–61) and Baldwin, New York (1961–70) before serving as the executive vice president of the Religious Zionists of America (1970–72). He led the Beth HaMedrosh Hagodol-Beth Joseph (1972–97) congregation and was the only rabbi chaplain of the Colorado Senate (1980–98). While serving as a congregational rabbi, Wagner also worked a professor of Jewish history at the University of Denver from 1972 to 1999. In 1975, at the university, he founded and directed the Center for Judaic Studies, Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society, Beck Archives, and the Holocaust Awareness Institute. He founded the Mizel Museum in 1982 and served as the director until 2000.
