Rabbinic Hebrew (OT531)

Dr. Bryan Estelle, Professor of Old Testament at WSC

February 9–May 11, 2023 | Thursdays, 9:00 – 9:55 a.m. PT
1 credit hour | In-Person | Prerequisites: OT403 (Hebrew IV)

Course Description: This course will introduce the student to the language and thought of the Mishnah. This will be accomplished through a study of the first four chapters of tractate Abot (the Fathers), a compilation of wisdom sayings setting forth the ideals for a virtuous life. Abot is of vast importance for the rabbinic language of Hebrew and the thought of the tannaim (the tannaitic period [in political terms] is that of the restoration of Judaism after the disasters of 70 and 135 A.D.), while at the same time being very accessible to beginners in the study of the Mishnah. Participants will interact with Codex Kaufmann (the most authoritative extant text) throughout the course.
