At the Association for Jewish Studies Annual Meeting, we presented an edited volume to my mentor, Professor Shaye Cohen (Harvard University): Strength to Strength: Essays in Honor of Shaye J. D. Cohen (Brown Judaic Studies). It was a warm and wonderful event. Isaiah Gafni and I each spoke briefly and then Shaye offered his own funny and touching reflections. Below are the remarks that I gave. ...Professor Satlow also blogged on his own contribution to the volume: Paul’s Scriptures.
Congratulations again to Professor Cohen. Background here.
