"Where Shall Wisdom Be Found?"

A Grammatical Tribute to Professor Stephen A. Kaufman

Edited by Hélène Dallaire, Benjamin Noonan, and Jennifer Noonan

Where Shall Wisdom Be Found: A Grammatical Tribute to Professor Stephen A. Kaufman honors Stephen A. Kaufman, Professor Emeritus of Bible and Cognate Literature at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) and co-founder of the Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon project, for his contributions to the world of Semitic studies and for his influence on young scholars of Bible and ancient Near Eastern studies. Professor Kaufman is a distinguished professor, internationally known expert and scholar, who for several decades guided the doctoral work of numerous graduate students in Hebrew and Cognate Studies at HUC-JIR (Cincinnati). A prolific author, editor, and innovator in the field of Semitic linguistics, Professor Kaufman challenged his students to delve deep into the study of Semitic languages in order to identify what the original authors intended to communicate in these ancient texts. Furthermore, he inspired countless scholars to reexamine the traditional interpretation of Semitic linguistic features and age-old seemingly unshakable paradigms of Akkadian, Ugaritic, Hebrew, Aramaic, and other Semitic languages.

Shaped by the expertise of Professor Kaufman, the scholars who contributed to this volume present recent developments in the study of the morphology, grammar, and syntax of Biblical Hebrew: nouns; adjectives; adverbs; definiteness; prepositions; tense, mood, and aspect; the verbal stems (binyanim); </i>qatal</i>; yiqtol; volitives; weqatal; wayyiqtol; participles; infinitives; conjunction and disjunction; Hebrew poetry; and Hebrew pedagogy. The volume is intended to serve as a scholarly resource for those interested in the morphological and syntactic features of Biblical Hebrew and as a textbook for advanced Biblical Hebrew classes in institutions of higher learning.
