Prof. Paula Fredriksen

Aurelio Professor of Scripture emerita at Boston University, since 2009 I have been privileged to teach at the Hebrew University. My latest two studies, Paul: The Pagans’ Apostle (2017), and When Christians Were Jews (2018), place the Jesus-movement’s Jewish messianic message within the wider world of ancient Mediterranean culture, politics, and power.

Yitzhak Mor

Yitzhak is a graduate student in Comparative Religion and a fellow at the Center for the Study of Christianity at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His thesis examines relations between Catholic and Jewish thinkers in contemporary America. In particular, he is interested in neoconservative Catholic ideology and its perspective regarding Judaism as a component of American religion—specifically relating to Jewish partnership in “Christian America”, anti-Semitism, the Holocaust, interfaith marriages and conversions. His broader research interests include political theology, Jewish-Christian interfaith dialogue, American religious and political conservatism, Christian Zionism and Holocaust consciousness in America.

Dr. David Satran

Office hours: by appointment (On sabbatical leave March 2017-February 2018)

I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation under the direction of Prof. (emeritus) Michael Stone on early Jewish and Christian exegesis of the book of Daniel and from its completion (1986) the Dept. of Comparative Religion has been my academic home at the Hebrew University. My teaching touches on different aspects of the history of Christianity with an emphasis on the period of the early Church.
