A Little About Me 

I decided to create this website to share some of the (hopefully) interesting ideas from the world of Jewish thought, history and halakhah that I encounter during my day.

I’m David Pruwer and am currently in the midst of my PhD studies in Jewish History and Philosophy at Cambridge University. Before starting my graduate studies, I learnt at Yeshivat Har Etzion in Israel, Yeshiva University in New York and completed my BA in History at UCL. I aim to draw upon the ideas uncovered in all these environments in my blog posts.

I hope these blogs will encourage further thought and reflection, so please do feel free to comment or get in touch.

Thank you for visiting!

David

  1. Where did you find obtain the picture of R’ Aharon zt”l? The OU magazine ran a broader version of it and I would like to make a copy of it for my office. I attempted to contact them but have not receive a reply.

  2. In your humour article, you cite a quote about Avraham falling on his face and laughing. Can you cite the source iof this statement? It’s not in my Chumash!

  3. Hi,
    thank you for all your essays, I really enjoy them.
    In your essay on laughter you quote Kohn’s book, ‘Rabbinic Humour.’ I’ve spent a long time (unsuccessfully) trying to find a copy (any language, digital or print). Did you yourself manage to access the actual text? If so- where?
    Again, thank you.
