Translation without Representation

By Yehuda Kurtzer

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2010

The author discusses differences between the rabbi's process of translation (i.e. mediating knowledge) and the academic scholar's process of translation. While many differences divide these two types of scholarship, the author suggests that the importance of the task of translation can be a common ground for academics and rabbis.
