Presentation and Discussion

The Discussion Hour engenders dialogue between professors from abroad and in Jerusalem, as well as between students and professors. Over an informal, light lunch, advanced students and senior scholars present aspects of their work in progress, for constructive feedback.

Unless otherwise specified, Discussion Hour talks will take place in the Rabin World Center of Jewish Studies, Mt. Scopus, Hebrew University, Room 2001/2.

Faculty, students, and visitors are welcome.
