The 19th Research Student Conference of the The Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies
The 19th Conference of Research Students in Jewish Studies was hosted by the Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in collaboration with the World Union of Jewish Studies.
The conference displayed original research in many fields of Jewish Studies, and invited for the second time participants from different universities. The two-day conference included a large number of lectures in diverse fields: Bible and the Ancient East, Rabbinic Literature, Talmud, Jewish Philosophy, The History of the Jewish People, Literature and Folklore, Zohar and Kabbalah, Arts and Languages.
The fruitful gathering of doctoral students from different Israeli universities is an opportunity for early career scholars to learn about the trends in Jewish Studies in Israel and gives them a chance to present their work to junior as well as senior scholars.
This year’s organizing committee included representatives from various fields of research at the Institute of Jewish Studies: Shir Twerski, Lotem Romano, Elyashiv Cherlow, Hananel Shapira, Tal Henia and Nocham Baitner, supported by the head of the Institute Prof. Noah Hacham and the Secretaries Anat Jani and Adva Cohen.
