Our once-upon-a-time teacher at Yeshiva University has panned a new book about rabbinic cultural development.
It’s a veritable battle over a book, Haym Soloveitchik v. Talya Fishman.
The book is Becoming the People of the Talmud: Oral Torah as Written Tradition in Medieval Jewish Cultures (Jewish Culture and Contexts).
The review by Haym is locked away to subscribers only at the Jewish Review of Books. We infer from hearsay and from the rejoinder that it is quite negative.
Fishman is busy issuing several rejoinders to the review, the first part is here – Response to Haym Soloveitchik “The People of the Book: Since When?” in Jewish Review of Books, Winter 2012, pp. 14-18.
She starts off, “Reading Professor Soloveitchik’s remarks, I was unable to recognize the book that I wrote.” She then makes a methodical case for the inaccuracies and errors of Haym’s review.
