Event - Anonymity and Annihilation with Barry Wimpfheimer

January 20, 2023

Virtual by Zoom Only

David Weiss Halivni (1927-2022) was a revolutionary in two separate intellectual arenas — talmudic analysis and Jewish theology. As an academic talmud scholar, Halivni innovated the notion that much of the Talmud was produced by a group of unnamed editors whom he called Stammaim. As a theologian, he worked to process both his own and the communal experience of the Holocaust in religious terms. We will learn about Halivni’s work and discuss how his Talmudic theory and unique theology might inform one another.
