The meeting was presided over by Justice of the Supreme Court, Prof. Moshe Silberg. The lecture and discussion were subsequently published with notes and a few minor changes in English translation, in the series El Ha Ayin, by the World Jewish Bible Society and the Israel Society for Biblical Research.
