▍ The Holy Garbage of the Temple and the Idea of Holiness
Dr. Hillel Mali
(NYU School of Law)
Sacred space is usually characterized by the assignment of a specific cultic task to each individual person, vessel and material. But even the most splendid temples produce waste products, residue of sacred material cast aside without use. This lecture will discuss the practicalities of the treatment of sacred waste, the theological principles underlying them, and the surprising connection between ritual architecture and law.
Dr. Hillel Mali is Gruss Scholar in Residence at the New York University (School of Law) and also departmental guest at Princeton University (Program in Judaic Studies). He holds Ph. D. in Talmudic and Halakhic Studies from Bar-Ilan University (Israel), and was Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Mali is an active member of the research group ━ „Thinking Rite“: Towards Talmudo-Mīmāṃsā (SAI & The Hebrew University of Jerusalem).
