Jonathan M. Hess (1965-2018): In Memoriam

April 11, 2018
The Jewish Quarterly Review

JQR is shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden death of Jonathan M. Hess (Penn Ph.D. 1993), the Moses M. and Hannah L. Malkin Distinguished Professor of Jewish History and Culture and Chair of the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Jonathan was a brilliant and lively scholar. He published essays in our pages in 2007 and again in our most recent issue (for his related blog post click here). 2018 also marks the publication of his most recent monograph Deborah and Her Sisters in our own Jewish Culture and Contexts series.


JQR and the Katz Center are honored to share in this small part of his formidable intellectual and scholarly legacy.
