The Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at Shalom Hartman Institute is proud to announce the launch of "Reshit – Studies in Judaism." Reshit is an online Hebrew language journal dedicated to contemplations in all aspects of Jewish culture – from the Bible to contemporary Israeli Judaism.
The articles in the first volume, written by scholars at the Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, range from Adi Ophir’s examination of "Three Forms of Divine Violence in the Bible" to Adiel Shremer’s provocative look at "Other Brothers." Ariel Picard examines the status of non-Jews in religious-Zionist halachic rulings, while Dror Yinon takes issue with Avi Sagi’s take on how to be a Jew.
Theater, poetry, literature philosophy, Talmud and history feature in other articles in this pilot issue. All the articles are the fruits of research conducted in the framework of the weekly seminars that take place at the Center for Advanced Studies.
