On this annual lecture, Professor Aaron Rubin will discuss the topic 'Modern South Arabian and Comparative Semitics'. Prof Rubin is currently based at Penn State University.
Dr. Diana Lipton's lecture 'Legacy, Prognostication and Jews' will explore the Torah's emphasis on inheritance and descendants, and the role this played in creating a culture that prizes plans, visions and dreams.
Forum Meetings are normally held once a term, as advertised at the beginning of the term. They are open to all those interested in Jewish Studies, members of the Forum and non-members alike. Cambridge visitors and students are also welcome. The presentations are dedicated to the recent research and tend to have an informal character.
