Rav Amnon Bazak 

Who really compiled and edited the Torah? Understanding and dispelling the “documentary hypothesis”

The “documentary hypothesis” claims the five books of Torah were put together from independent, parallel, and complete narratives and then compiled by a series of editors.  The hypothesis came to light in the 18th and 19th century as an answer to supposed inconsistencies in the text. 

Rav Bazak, a Ram at Yeshiva Har Etzion (Gush), is a proficient scholar in Talmud and one of the most innovative modern Tanach scholars in Israel today.  Recognised internationally, he presents a fascinating new perspective and context around both the popular and less well known portions of Tanach. Rav Bazak is a guest of the RSVP group of Mizrachi (Rabbinical Scholar Visiting Program).
