Weiss-Halivni, David
Jewish Liturgy

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor Halivni is the cutest man ever. That said, he is also a brilliant and well-respected scholar who has forgotten more about Jewish law than I will ever know. His class can be boring if you don't make an attempt to stay involved and awake, but he is very receptive to questions and always gives well informed and interesting answers.

Professor Halivni may not remember your name, but he definitely notices students presence (or absence) and sometimes comments on it, he also requests that if you see him on the street that you say hi.

I enjoyed his class, the open-ended nature of the paper topic and the experience in general. As he is retiring soon, I would suggest taking a class with him soon, even if you don't love it he is one of those people that you have to at least speak to once.

Workload:

One 15-page paper at the end, just do it, any effort gets an A-.
