My Research on the Bible and Biblical Hebrew

Items Moved from ResearchGate

Below are links to three items moved here from my page on ResearchGate (RG).

The reason for this is that RG weekly summarizes view-statistics of academic units at universities for public display. Since my research on the Bible and biblical Hebrew was conducted privately (not at the department with which I am affiliated at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev), I felt it appropriate that items related to this research would be publicly displayed only on my personal blog.

The decision to move these items to my personal blog is my own. No individual, either within the university or otherwise, has requested me to do so.

Shalom Prof. Shore,
I agree with your decision to separate your private work from your professional work. I also do not post the results of my private work on spiritual matters on my Research Gate page. Like you, no one told me not to do so, it just seems more appropriate to keep them separate.
My best wishes for your continued success.
