Bath Houses: The Shared Space between Athens and Jerusalem

I have had my first ever academic article published. It appears in the Spring 2020 edition of European Judaism. In it, I compare the experiences of Rabban Gamliel in the bath houses of 2nd Century Akko with those of Rabbi Lionel Blue in 20th Century Amsterdam. I argue that these bath houses form important points of cultural connection, with sexual and spiritual implications.
