Moses' Face

Moses' images as reflected in Jewish literature

One was Moses but many are his faces. Starting with the Hebrew Bible, continuing with Jewish literatures throughout history (Second Temple literature, rabbinic literature, medieval commentaries, modern literature, thought and art.) the character of Moses keeps changing and developing through the eyes of the beholder, it's time, tendency and the nature of the genre. The course will follow the different phases of Moses' character and try to understand what motives are behind them. אחד היה משה אך רבים פניו. החל בגופו של המקרא והמשך בספרות עם ישראל לדורותיו (ספרות הבית השני, ספרות חז"ל, פרשני ימי הביניים ועוד) וכלה בספרות, באמנות ובהגות של העת החדשה - לובשת ופושטת דמות של משה צורות חדשות ומגוונות, על פי המתבונן, זמנו, מגמתו ואופי יצירתו. הקורס יעקב אחר גלגולי דמויותיו של משה [ביצירה שעד ראשית תקופת הגאונים] ויבקש להבין מה עומד מאחורי יצירתן.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

for making students in one review

Thank you, Hebrew University, for making students who cannot attend a class on campus to learn from two brilliant scholars.

someone could add in one review

And if someone could add subtitles to their lectures, you will open this course world-wide to many Christians and some Muslims who would benefit from their approach.

two brilliant scholars in one review

combination of dr. in one review

The combination of Dr. Shinan and Dr. Zakovitch, and their ability to weave ancient and contemporary sources together, makes a course like this impossible to find elsewhere in the world.

contemporary sources together in one review

either together or in one review

If they are interested in offering a course on another topic, either together or separately, I would encourage you to have them do so.
