This year,Gary A.
Distinguished Professorof Jewish Studies, introduced what is
believed to be the first course in Egyptian hieroglyphics at
Rutgers University–New Brunswick. As the
students advanced in his two-semester sequential course, they learned
to read and analyze ancient Egyptian literary texts and gained a
better understanding of Egyptian history, which are central to
understanding the ancient Near East and the emergence of Israelite
religion. In March, the class visited the Met's Egyptian galleries
where they had the pleasure of reading hieroglyphs on the museum's
extraordinary artifacts. This exciting opportunity was made possible
with the generous support of the Henry and Marilyn Taub Curriculum
Enhancement Fund. View more photos here.
