In Memoriam

Gershon Hundert (1946-2023)

Gershon Hundert Z’l passed away on October 27th 2023, after a short illness. Gershon was a beloved colleague, teacher, and mentor. We miss him terribly.

Below are two tributes: the first, written by Gershon’s colleagues in Jewish Studies and History; the second, by current students in Jewish Studies.

We are also sharing a short video in which Gershon describes the core research concerns that have animated his career. The clip is taken from a 2012 event held at McGill to celebrate Gershon’s election, together with Derek Penslar and David Novak, into the fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada.
