The important scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Ancient Judaism, Ben Zion Wacholder, has passed away. יהי זכרו ברוך.

One Response to “Ben Zion Wacholder z”l”

  1. 1
    Timothy Clontz:

    Ben Zion Wacholder was the man who broke the monopoly on the scrolls by brainstorming the reverse engineering of the concordances. The resultant text was over 97% accurate, and led to the full release of the texts to the world after decades of gridlock.

    For scholars of any religion, he was a hero.

    And for those of us who met him — he was a most unassuming and kind hero. He will be missed.
