H-Judaic is greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Prof. Stanley Nash (1939-2022), emeritus professor of Hebrew Literature and Language at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (NY).  Prof. Nash was best known for his book,  In Search of Hebraism: Shai Hurwitz and His Polemics in the Hebrew Press and his translation of  Y.L.
