New articles and books

Bar Ilan University Press has issued new volumes of its journals Sidra and Da'at. I haven't seen them yet, so I can't say much about them.

Magnes Press is publishing an updated version of the late Ezra Fleischer's book, Shirat ha-Kodesh ha-Ivrit. They also recently published a collection of studies on MD Cassuto. Among his many achievements was a catalogue of some of the Hebrew manuscripts in the Vatican library. A new catalogue, covering all Hebrew manuscripts in all the Vatican collections, is due to be published sometime in the forseeable future.
Apparently, the Moshe Bar Asher festschrift has also been published.

And a new issue of the Meorot Journal has hit the stands, with an intense exchange between Jen Taylor Friedman and Rabbi Dov Linzer, about the halakhic status of a Sefer Torah written by a woman.

The following comment from footnote eight of Rabbi Linzer's article seems a bit harsch: "This is an imagined distinction, with no logical basis, and it is absurd to read it into all these texts."

Is an electronic version of Meorot available?

Menachem, it may be harsh, but it is justified.
Ziyyuf ha-torah is a serious issue.

I believe that they added Shulamit Elizur's article on the קיקלר to the new edition of שירת הקודש. Since I have the old edition, I guess I'll just have to paste those pages into my copy.
