On May 28, David Meyer defended his PhD dissertation on Yalkut Shimoni. 700 pages in French! Meyer did a great job and presented us with an interesting study on the way the editor of the Yalkut used his sources, and topped it off with a superb defense. Rob Nelisse took some pictures of me in action in my KU Leuven toga.
May was a busy month! It started with the parable seminar that I organised with Paul Mandel at the Schechter institute. The next week followed the JCP conference on Holy Places, also at the Schechter. During this conference we heard that PThU and Schechter received an Erasmus+ grant to enable student- and staff-exchanges between the institutions! Photo credits: Rob Nelisse
In deze rubriek wordt PThU medewerkers om een korte reflexie bij een kunstwerk gevraagd. In schreef dit naar aanleiding van de foto “Levensboom” van Esther en Janne, alias “de Lichtdichter”.
I invited Rabbi Evers at the PThU to talk to the students about the ’10 Words’. This is an impression as it appeared on the PThU website.
I presented my paper “Manna as spiritual food? Revisiting the Dorshei Reshumot’ in the midrash session chaired by David Nelson and Rivka Ulmer.
