The Year 2023 marked the sixtieth anniversary of the death of Yehezkel Kaufmann. His revolutionary thinking had a lasting impact on biblical studies, Jewish thought, and beyond, especially through his two influential multi-volume works. Sixty years after his death, we seek to examine critically the impact of his thought, its intellectual and biographical roots and his legacy. The lectures are in English and in Hebrew.
