Expect the Unexpected: Stories From the Talmud

Prof. Haim Weiss, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Anyone who is familiar with rabbinic literary work, especially the texts found in the Talmud and the Midrashim, knows that this unique body of literature contains an unmistakable spirit of freedom, liberty and imagination. In this lecture, we will seek to understand some of the characteristics of rabbinic literary work, not from an educational or religious point of view but rather out of a desire to know and celebrate some of its more surprising and unpredictable aspects.

Prof. Haim Weiss, Head of the Hebrew Literature Department, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Haim teaches rabbinic literature at the Department of Hebrew Literature at Ben-Gurion University. His work focuses on close reading of Talmudic stories as well as examining the complicated relationship between rabbinic literature and modern Hebrew literature.
