The Lester and Sally Entin Faculty of Humanities Tel Aviv University
Dr. Noam Mizrahi has received his academic degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, all of them in distinction (BA in 2000, MA in 2002). He completed his PhD in 2008, under the supervision of Prof. Avi Hurvitz of the Departments of Bible and Hebrew Language. He was a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard University (USA) and Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Germany). Upon his return to Israel in 2012, he was named as an Allon Fellow of the national Council for Higher Education and was appointed as faculty member at the Department of Hebrew Culture Studies, and then at the Department of Bible of Tel Aviv University.
Dr. Mizrahi has won numerous and prestigious scholarships, prizes and research grants both in Israel and abroad. Among other things, he was a Rothenstreich fellow during his doctoral studies, a Rothschild post-doctoral fellow, and got research grants from the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture (New York), Israel Science Foundation, Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) etc. He is also an awarded teacher, and got the TAU Rector Award for excellent teaching in 2015.
Dr. Mizrahi specializes in philological study of ancient Hebrew literature, with special interest in the textual and linguistic aspects of the Hebrew Bible (including its ancient versions) and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Among his research projects is the preparation of a new edition and commentary of the Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice, a liturgical composition whose fragmentary copies were found in Qumran and Masada, and which represents one of the most unique and challenging works of Hebrew poetry created in antiquity.
Dr. Mizrahi has published many dozens of scholarly articles on topics related to Biblical and Qumran Hebrew, textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible, and their implications for the understanding of the history and interpretation of the texts concerned. His publications can be found and read in his personal page at https://telaviv.academia.edu/NoamMizrahi (with the exception of items whose publishers had explicitly banned open access).
