Paper:

G-d, Israel, Moses: The Formation of the Ongoing Learning Community

I hope to discuss the roles of G-d, Israel and Moses in the Sinai narratives of Exodus and Deuteronomy and to investigate the way in which each depiction shapes the ongoing experience of Torah study for the generation of the desert and afterwards.
