Congratulating Dr. Tine Rassalle

Updated: Jan 4, 2022

The Newly Minted Dr. Rassale

We at SASA would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Dr. Tine Rassalle for being awarded her PhD in the field of Ancient Mediterranean Religions, with her dissertation focusing on coin deposits found in synagogues in Late Antique Palestine. More information on her dissertation can be found at, so if you or someone you know has an interest in coins, synagogues, or simply loves to learn, Tine's website is a great start. For more on Tine and her personal achievements, check out her academic profile at

Tine came to the US in 2014 as a first-generation college student to pursue her academic passion for the ancient world. She joined SASA in the Spring of 2020, hoping to share her academic knowledge worldwide with anyone who shares her passion - an outlook that we all support. Now that she has graduated, Tine is searching for a job that will allow her to continue this mission. She hopes to find work in a museum or public humanities center from which she can continue her research on the Ancient Near East while educating the public on why it is so important to cherish and preserve our shared history.

Tine has led SASA’s Fundraising team for over a year and has been key in helping us secure a range of funding and grants to support our projects and mission. We owe her a huge amount of thanks for her passion and support during our early stages and for helping us reach our recent milestones too.

To Tine - thank you for all your hard work, and congratulations on the well-deserved Doctorate!
