This chapter examines the 1975 essay, “The Isaac Syndrome,” by Shlomo G. Shoham, an internationally renowned criminologist and author, which intensified the debate among contemporary Isaacs and Abrahams. Shoham conducted his own altercation with the contested trope by unearthing little-remembered details of its retellings in Midrash Genesis Rabbah. He found in the very same text the startling image of a murderous Abraham.

Keywords:   Shlomo G. Shoham, Isaac, Abraham, trope, Midrash Genesis Rabbah
