Blood money among the Hittites, the Hurrians, the Babylonians, and the Israelites: An ancient “barbaric” and “primitive” custom with a deeply powerful modern humanistic message.


David Meir-Levi is an American-born Israeli currently living in Palo Alto, CA. He holds a BA from Johns Hopkins University, and an MA in Near Eastern Studies from Brandeis University. He studied and then taught Archaeology and Near Eastern History at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and at the University of Tel Aviv in the 60’s and 70’s, during which time he completed his service in the Israeli military. He most recently served as a faculty member at San Jose State University (CA), where he lectured on the Middle East and Israel in the Department of History.
