Noah Bickart is Visiting Assistant Professor of Jewish and Interreligious Studies. Previously, he was Hilda and Jacob Blaustein Post Doctoral Associate in the Program of Jewish Studies at Yale University and assistant professor of Talmud and Rabbinics at the Jewish Theological Seminary. He received a BA in English literature for the University of Chicago, an MTS from the Harvard Divinty School, and Rabbinical Ordination and a PhD in Talmud and Rabbinics from the Jewish Theological Seminary. Dr. Bickart’s dissertation focused on the meaning and usage of a particular set of linguistically related Talmudic terms in order to show how and in what cultural context the Talmud began to take shape in the emerging scholastic centers of Rabbinic learning in late Sassanian Babylonia. He is currently working on a project that focuses in ancient Jewish and related cultures.
