Kanarfogel_60512F-12Dr. Ephraim Kanarfogel, E. Billi Ivry University Professor of Jewish History, Literature and Law, recently published three articles: “Rabbinic Conceptions of Matchmaking in Medieval Europe,” in Entangled Histories: Knowledge, Authority, and Jewish Culture in the Thirteenth Century (University of Pennsylvania Press); “Returning Apostates and their Marital Partners in Medieval Ashkenaz,” in Contesting Inter-Religious Conversion in the Medieval World (Routledge Press, London and New York); and (in Hebrew) “Tosafists as Peshat Exegetes: A Century after S. A. Poznanski’s Introduction to Biblical Exegesis in Northern France,” in the inaugural volume of Mikhlol (Pardes Conference Series, Jerusalem).

In addition, he presented a paper, “R. Judah he-Hasid and the Tosafists of Northern France,” at an international conference on Sefer Hasidim and its Context, held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the National Library of Israel. One of Kanarfogel’s doctoral students at the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies, Chaya Sima Koenigsberg (whose dissertation deals with the writings of Judah’s leading student, R. Eleazar of Worms), was also invited to participate in the conference deliberations.
