33 Weinberger 1998, 69. 30 31 what happened to the jewish priesthood after 70? 15 made out for the piyyut and the midrash drawing on a common source as for the piyyut directly quoting the midrash. There are many traditions in piyyut, some powerfully mythological in tone, which are not found in rabbinic midrash. 34 He also notes cases where the halakhah in piyyut contradicts the consensus view of the Sages,35 a phenomenon also attested in Targum. It is not surprising that the rabbis are suspicious of piyyut.

Alexander called first to the public reading of the torah, and space is given in the service to allow them, when appropriate, to recite the Priestly Blessing. The major prayer of the synagogue, the {Amidah, is full of distinctively priestly concerns, and may be priestly in origin: no less than six of its nineteen benedictions directly or indirectly pray for the restoration of the temple service.

In Babylonia Targum Onqelos was believed to have emerged from the School of {Aqiva, and this tradition may have contributed to the authority of that Targum there, but it is based on a textual corruption: ‘Onqelos’ is a deformation of the name ‘Akylas,’ and the reference, as the Palestian parallel and, indeed, the wording of the pericope itself show,45 is to the Greek version of Aquila ( y.
