This essay reflects on the cross-border performance of the ger in the
basic rabbinic text, the Talmud. It looks at ways in which the ger opens
up inside the Talmudic texture a space of reflection on the borders of
the rabbinic socio-political project, i.e. ‘Israel’. The immigrant ger,
initially an outsider, is unveiled as a paradigm of the rabbinic subject.
The guiding question concerns the nature of the space in which the
cross-border event of the ger takes place, namely the topo-logy of
rabbinic Israel. The basic observation is the shift from biblical territorial
narrative to deterritorialized Talmud.
