Dr. Steven Fine, director of Yeshiva University’s Center for Israel Studies, and Dr. Shai Secunda (‘07BR) have co-edited a book honoring Dr. Yaakov Elman, Professor of Talmud at YU. Titled Shoshanat Yakov and published by Brill Press, the book celebrates Elman’s contributions to a broad range of disciplines within Jewish and Iranian studies. The fruits of Elman’s seminal project, which bring together scholars of Iranian studies and Talmud in ways that have transformed both disciplines, are well represented in this volume, together with scholarship that ranges from Second Temple Judaism to Late Antique Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Samaritanism and Christianity.
