JTS Professor Receives Goldstein-Goren Book Award

JTS Professor of Bible and Ancient Semitic Languages Dr. Benjamin D. Sommer has received the Goldstein-Goren Book Award for best recent work on Jewish Thought. Dr. Sommer’s Revelation and Authority: Sinai in Jewish Scripture and Tradition, was selected for this honor by the Goldstein-Goren International Center for Jewish Thought at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The prize is bestowed every three years, most recently in 2013.

“This book would not have been possible without JTS’s unwavering commitment to scholarship,” said Dr. Sommer. “It is a pleasure to thank Chancellor Arnold Eisen and Provost Alan Cooper for all their support.”
