Edwin and Marilyn Bierman Scholar in Residence

March 21 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm


We are excited to welcome Dr. Marjorie Lehman, associate professor of Talmud and Rabbinics at The Jewish Theological Seminary.

Her research in the field of Talmud and Rabbinics centers on four areas: Talmudic Aggadah, through a study of the 16th-century Ottoman collection of aggadic material, the En Yaaqov; Jewish gender studies, through an examination of Tractate Yoma using the lens of gender and a study of depictions of mothers in Jewish culture; the history of the Hebrew book as the co-director of a digital humanities project, Footprints; and the scholarship of teaching, through a focused study of how students learn to read and critically analyze rabbinic texts.

12:30pm Kiddush Lunch

1:15pm Lecture by Dr. Lehman – The ‘#MeToo Movement’ and the Lessons of Batsheva and David
