Thank you, Hebrew University, for making students who cannot attend a class on campus to learn from two brilliant scholars. The combination of Dr. Shinan and Dr. Zakovitch, and their ability to weave ancient and contemporary sources together, makes a course like this impossible to find elsewhere in the world. If they are interested in offering a course on another topic, either together or separately, I would encourage you to have them do so. And if someone could add subtitles to their lectures, you will open this course world-wide to many Christians and some Muslims who would benefit from their approach. This is an A+ class from a A+ university.

One of the most interesting courses I have taken in Coursera. the wealth of information and sources about one of the most important and influencing people in the history of the world and Israel particularly is impressive. The two professors made relatively long video sessions to be extremely interesting and never boring, thank you for opening this slit into the life of Moshe.

Thank you to the professors of this course, Avigdor Shinan and Yair Zakovitch for the enjoyable and engaging way in which they delivered this complex topic with its huge amount of information. I have learned a lot.The fact that they choose to bring the material not in a historic chronological order brought a spark, a dynamic, at times the effect of surprise to the lectures. It was touching how they brought into light the humanity of Moses, his greatness and his failures as a human being, not only his almost super-human characteristics. I liked also the modern literature they brought into this topic, especially the poets Yehuda Amichai and Rachel. I appreciate the great knowledge of these two professors in their respective fields, their professionalism and humility.
I am sorry that I couldn't get into direct conversations with them by being physically present in the classroom during the lectures, but this is the online era.
This was my first course taken with Coursera. I am sure to return for more.

קורס מרתק, מומלץ מאוד למי שמעוניין במבוא בסיסי למחקר המקורות (מקרא, וספרות בתר מקראית), למרות שאין זה הנושא העיקרי של הקורס, בדרך אגב, החוקרים מדגימים את ההישגים של המתודה המחקרית.מאידך, הקורס לא מתאים למי שלא מכיר את סיפורי המקרא היכרות מוקדמת

This course should get 5 stars... but with so many students missing out, due to a lack of translation to English (or any other language than Hebrew) many will get little if anything from this amazing class...
