Rabbinic Strategies for Presenting Torah to Others - Prof. Isaiah Gafni

With: Isaiah Gafni

Jewish tradition recognizes Shavuot as a commemoration of the granting of the Torah to the people of Israel. Where do non-Jews figure in this framework? May Torah be imparted to gentiles, and if so - in what manner? 


To discover the response, we will carefully analyze three sources that attempt to address this very question.

Prof. Isaiah Gafni is a historian of Judaism in the Second Temple and Talmudic periods. He is the Sol Rosenbloom Chair of Jewish History at Hebrew University and President of Shalem College.
