Raphael Dascalu

Tanḥum b. Joseph ha-Yerushalmi (d. 1291, Fusṭāṭ, Egypt) was a rigorous linguist and philologist, philosopher and mystic, and a biblical exegete of singular breadth.

No doubt Penchansky has written a remarkable, even challenging introduction to wisdom literature in the Bible. This introduction is a useful guide to deepening the knowledge of, e.g., Proverbs, Qohelet, and Job. Although a lot of scholarly discussion has been put together, I would be rather
