End of academic year

There are many reasons why I don't like this time of year. The heat, for one. And the need to focus on revision instead of new and exciting research.

The good Prof Penkower pointed me to the new website of the International Organization of Masoretic Studies. The Organization is sponsoring a couple of sessions at the World Congress of Jewish Studies. In one of them, Prof Penkower will be discussing a late medieval Bukharan Pentateuch. With his ability to make the number of lines in Shirat ha-Yam sound interesting, it should be fascinating.

By the way, if you were unable to open the link to the WCJS programme earlier, try this.
