FOOTNOTE

Talmud scholar Eliezer Shkolnik  has worked in obscurity at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University. In contrast, Eliezer’s son, Uriel , also an academic, has published many books and received numerous accolades. Eliezer looks down on his son’s achievements and pursuit of fame, and so the pair have a rocky relationship. Their rivalry comes to a head when Eliezer receives word that, at long last, he is the recipient of the prestigious Israeli Prize.
