Erasmus+ collaboration with the Schechter Institute effectuated

Last week the Erasmus+ collaboration between the Schechter Institute in Jerusalem and the PThU was formally inaugurated with a signing ceremomy and a festive dinner with lectures. I was asked to speak about the topic¬†‘Changing Identities in a Global World’.¬† In the course of the week I also taught the students of the Schechter: two classes in midrash, in which I compared parables from the NT with rabbinic parables, and a class on the repurposed synagogue in The Hague that is now a mosque.
