Amit Shafran is an MA student in the History Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a member of the Beyond the Elite team. Her thesis examines a thirteenth-century Hebrew manuscript containing magical texts for rituals related to different aspects of communal and family life: marriage, fertility, health, and reputation. In her research, she analyzes these formulas in the context of daily life, focusing on the worldview of Jews in northern French communities and their ideas about magic, science, and the natural world.
