Hannah Tzuberi studied Jewish Studies and Islamic Studies at Freie Universität Berlin and was a research assistant at the Institute for Jewish Studies (FU Berlin).  Her dissertation deals with rabbinic sources on the saving of life. She is the co-editor of “Jewish Friends: Contemporary Figures of the Jew” (Jewish Studies Quarterly 27:2–3, 2020) and is working on a book-project titled “Reviving Judaism, Reviving the Nation: Post-Holocaust Imaginaries of the (German) Nation-State.”Her research interests include contemporary European Jewry and the commemoration and “re-making” of German Jewry by various state bodies as well as by various Jewish representative organs and institutions. Her work draws on the critical study of secularism and current discussions related to the co-constitutive relations between Europe, the European subject, and Europe’s racial-religious others. A related but distinct research interest is rabbinic literature and Jewish law.
