ISAW Research Associate Yehudah Cohn has been awarded a senior researcher position from February to July 2014 under the aegis of the Research in Paris program, and will be hosted by the École Pratique des Hautes Études. He will be working on the Hebrew Pentateuch commentary by Rashi of Troyes (in Northern France), of which the Bibliothèque Nationale has numerous manuscripts. Rashi was the pre-eminent Jewish medieval exegete, and while in Paris Yehudah will be investigating the commentary's adaptation of late-Antique sources in Hebrew and Aramaic, originating with the Jews of the Roman and Sassanian empires in the 2nd - 7th centuries.
