In May 2019 I taught at UCU in Lviv as part of the Erasmus+ exchange with the PThU. Two of my lectures were filmed.

Lecture: Rebekah in the Midrash

Lecture: The Parables of Jesus and the Other Rabbis

Videos for teaching

Together with Rob Nelisse I design videos to use in my courses on Judaism at the PThU. After a pilot about Simchat Tora [in Dutch]

 we now work on a series of short video courses about Jerusalem in the first century CE.

We made a short trailer in Dutch, but the rest of the videos will be in English.
