Paper proposals are due on January 18, 2019.
The Regional Executive Committee is pleased to announce that next year’s meeting will be held jointly with our AAR companion, the New England-Maritimes Region (NEMAAR).
The meeting will be held on Friday, March 22, 2019 at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts.
In the spring, the Regional Student Committee surveyed student members about how we can serve them better. All those who responded were entered into a raffle for free registration and lunch at the 2019 Regional Meeting.
The winner is Kamil Halambiec from Yale.
Matthew Goldstone (NYU) has won this year’s Regional Scholar Award for his paper, “The Role of Limitation in Early Rabbinic Midrashim.” He now advances to competition at the national level.
Shlomo Zuckier (Yale) has won the Best Student Paper award for his paper, “Expiation, Atonement, or Reconciliation: The Rabbinic Meaning(s) of Kapparah.”
Congratulations to Matthew and Shlomo!
The survey closes this Friday, the 27th. If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment and complete it here:
