The Biblical Archaeology Society is pleased to announce that the joint winners of the 2009 Hershel Shanks Prize are Uzi Leibner of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Gregg Gardner of Princeton University.
The Hershel Shanks Prize, supported by a contribution from Sami Rohr of Bal Harbour, Florida, was awarded for the best academic paper(s) on the Archaeology of Late Antique Judaism and the Talmudic Period presented at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR).
Uzi Leibner’s paper was titled “The Galilean Synagogue of Khirbet Wadi Hamam,” and Gregg Gardner’s paper was titled “Light to the Nations: The Menorah and the Candlestick Lamps in Byzantine Christian-Jewish Discourse.” The $10,000 prize was split between the two winners.
