Welcome back to the final weeks of the semester! If you haven't already checked out the BTI Consortium Spring 2019 Catalog, you'll be excited to learn that there are approximately 300 courses available for cross registration, including online and doctoral courses! Additionally, we organized the catalog by school rather than by course area, so please let us know what you think.

If you find yourself needing more to do in the upcoming weeks, check out our Classifieds and Calls for Papers/Conferences section of the newsletter. We have many exciting job postings, paper calls, and fellowship/scholarship opportunities available with due dates this winter.

We wish you all the best as you finish the semester.

Events Around the BTI Consortium

What would Maimonides say if he lived now? How would our reading of the Torah change if it were on an iPad rather than a scroll? We update our phones, we update our operating systems, why not update our Judaism?

Join Eser in Spring 2019 for “Ten Millennial Updates to Jewish Living.” Over the course of the 10 weeks — from the first week in March through mid-May — Eser groups will gather throughout Greater Boston to converse about diverse including race, love and sex, the passage of time, the Holocaust, bioethics, Jewish humor and more.

What is Eser? Eser is Hebrew for 10, a number with special significance in Judaism. Eser brings together individuals in their 20s and 30s for conversations in neighborhood living rooms to build connection and community.

On Wednesday, December 5, S. Zahra Moballegh, 2018-19 WSRP Visiting Associate Professor, will deliver the lecture "From Being to Becoming Woman: Decoding the Meaning of Femininity in the Qur’anic Stories." Lunch will be served.
