The Geniza and Me

By Barbara Mann

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2010

Reacting to Yehuda Kurtzer's "Translation Without Representation", which appears directly before this article in this issue, the author contends that rabbinical and secular-academic students do not approach Jewish texts as differently as Kurtzer claims. All readers encounter texts mediated by their contexts, and filtered though their own agendas, the author notes.
