Shemaryahu Talmon: May His Memory be for a Blessing

From the Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies: From l to r — Prof. C. Rabin, Prof. M.H, Goshen-Gottstein, Prof. S. Talmon studying the Aleppo Codex

Just noticed this on PaleoJudaica. Apparently, Shemaryahu Talmon, the Judah L. Magnes professor emeritus of Bible as Hebrew U, has passed away at the age of 90. James Davila has provided a link to his wikipedia entry, as well as the message that appeared on the Agade list. A profile of him in English, as well as some of his publications, can be seen here (TALMON).  In ’97 Prof. Talmon won the coveted Israel Prize for Biblical Research. May his memory be for a blessing!
