For Shavuot 5781, the 8th anniversary of TheTorah.com, we invited scholars to answer the following questions:
- What were the circumstances—familial, social, intellectual, religious—that influenced your choice to pursue biblical studies?
- Has your involvement in the field affected the nature of your religious beliefs and behavior, and if so, how?
This is a developing series: New reflections will be added over time.
