In memoriam Moshe Gil (1912-2014)

From Jonathan D. Sarna, on behalf of H-Judaic

H-Judaic is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Prof. Moshe Gil
(1921-2014),  Joseph and Ceil Mazer Emeritus Chair in the History of the
Jews in Muslim Lands at Tel Aviv University, and winner of the Israel
Prize.  Prof. Gil published fundamental work on the exilarch, documents
from the Cairo Genizah and on Palestine under Islam.   English readers know him best for his A HISTORY OF PALESTINE 634-1099 (Cambridge University Press.) A brief Wikipedia entry may be found here:

We extend condolences to Prof. Gil's family.

Jonathan D. Sarna
Chair H-Judaic
