The following research study presents data drawn from an arts-based qualitative research study from 2013. Students created artistic interpretations of biblical texts using a variety of media. One of the significant findings of the study was that learning through the arts provided students with an opportunity to take on the role of parshan, or biblical commentator. Three examples of artwork is presented and combined, they show that by taking on the role of parshan, students were able to craft original interpretations of text and develop new connections with the text. Learning in this way demonstrated the significance of integrating the arts into Bible curricula as a vehicle for developing new types of positive and educational experiences for students.

Tanakh Profiles - An Encyclopedia of Biblical Personalities is an alphabetical listing of every individual mentioned in Tanakh. Its focus is the literal presentation of the stories and lives of the many people who populate the Bible. Entries contain three pieces of information. 1. The individual's name; 2. Locations where the person appears in Tanakh 3. A summary of the personality's life as recorded in the text. For many individuals mentioned in the Torah I have also included the Torah reading portions (parshot) in which they feature. Lengthy entries in Neviim or Ketubim contain a separate detail: when a career spans many chapters, I have noted the chapter numbers in which events occur. All entry titles are vocalized (are written with vowels), and the occasional name (of a person or a place), or term within the entry itself is also vocalized.

This site, developed and maintained by Professor Mark Brettler, aims to teach students how to use a set of specialized tools for the study of the Hebrew text of the Hebrew Bible (henceforth, the Bible). These are different from the tools used for modern Hebrew because the languages are substantially different, and because the study of ancient texts, written in 'dead' or 'literary' languages, such as BH (biblical Hebrew), is fundamentally different from the study of modern languages.
