Ephraim Urbach

A native of Poland, Urbach studied in Rome and Breslau before immigrating to Palestine in 1937. He would go on to become one of Israel’s preeminent scholars. He taught Talmud at Hebrew University and launched an unsuccessful bid to be Israel’s President (1973). Urbach’s seminal work, The Sages, focuses on the evolution of Jewish religious and social thought.
