UNC Mediahub article featuring Jodi Magness: “Reshaping the way we think about Judaism”
Jodi Magness, Kenan Distinguished Professor for Teaching Excellence in Early Judaism, serves as the director of the Huqoq Excavation Site in Israel. She and a cohort of students are working to uncover ancient mosaics at the ancient Galilee village to decipher whether Judaism declined or flourished during the rise of Christianity. Magness is challenging long-held opinions about Jewish history.
“What Jodi is doing with this excavation is reshaping the way we think about Judaism in this historical period,” said Robert Rhinehart, a rising junior at Carolina. Rhinehart has spent two summers in Huqoq and now plans to pursue a career in archaeology because of Magness’ influence. He said it feels “crazy to think that you’re a part of her historically changing research.”
