DescriptionThe resurgence of Rabbinic Judaism in the early Empire was due in part to the development of midrash – the unique rabbinic approach to Scripture. Marc Hirshman, professor of Jewish Education at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Greenberg Visiting Professor of Jewish Studies at The University of Chicago, will look at the origins of the approach and its cultural context. A (kosher) buffet reception will follow. For information, contact Nancy Pardee at
