Now in Video: “Modeling the Flood Story: Midrash and Movie”

In Fall 2014, the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies partnered with Yeshiva College and the YU Museum in hosting  “Modeling the Flood Story: Midrash and Movie,” an interdisciplinary symposium examining the biblical flood account and how the story has been read, interpreted, reconstructed – and modeled – through Midrash, medieval and modern texts, art, and film, with a particular focus on the 2014 Hollywood film Noah, directed by Darren Aronofsky.


The Last Minute

On Monday evening December 15th, starting at 8:00 PM, the Library hosted “The Last Minute,” a four-hour pilot event designed to assist individual students with end-of-semester research projects and term papers.  Librarians and Writing Center Tutors were on hand on the third floor of the Mendel Gottesman Library Building for one-on-one consultation with students. The event marked a first time collaboration between the Library and the Wilf Writing Center, with support from the Student Life Committee and the Yeshiva College Student Association.   Writing Center tutors from both campuses contributed to the evening’s success.
