Today I tutored a university class on the prophet Amos, and the (admittedly tenuous) relationship between his oracles against foreign nations and the developing genre of apocalyptic. Afterwards, I drove to Chatswood to teach a group of twelve- and thirteen-year old kids about the “ten martyrs” tradition and ונתנה תוקף. Once that was done, I then taught the first two hours of an eight-hour course on the development of Jewish mysticism, the anti-mystical tendencies of the early rabbinic movement, and the story of the four rabbis who entered the/an orchard in tHag 2:2.

I love my job.
