Marjorie Lehman is associate professor of Talmud and Rabbinics at the Jewish Theological Seminary. Her research encompasses Talmudic Aggadah, Jewish gender studies, the history of the Hebrew book, and the scholarship of teaching. She is the co-director of a digital humanities project, Footprints, which tracks the movement of individual copies of Jewish books by examining censors’ marks, library stamps, owners’ signatures, bookplates, and handwritten marginalia. While at the Katz Center, she will analyze the talmud tractate Yoma for its outlook on the temple as the exemplar of the bayit (house).
Lehman received her PhD from Columbia University. She has previously held fellowships at the Frankel Center at Michigan, the Mandel Center at Brandeis, and JTS.
