Ph.D. thesis

Abstract:

The objective of the thesis, is to understand the structuring of the cultural attitude to the stranger as it transpires from the literary formation of Esau and Zipporah in the biblical narrative and the Midrashic narrative as a basis for educational perception in the field of Jewish teaching. As educators, involved in the mediation of Jewish texts to their students, we wish to investigate not only what the attitude is to the stranger characters who appear in the narrative but rather also what this attitude can teach us about the appropriate educational method when we come to deal with the attitude to male and female stranger characters in general.
