This chapter examines the presence of the Canaanites in rabbinic literature, and argues that rabbinic literature makes no attempt to ignore the Canaanite presence in the history and the archaeology of the land. The Canaanites are present in rabbinic halakhic discourse and as part of the history and the archaeology of the land of Israel. Moreover, as shown by certain halakhic discussions, during the rabbinic period the descendants of the Canaanites were considered to be present in the land of Israel.

Keywords:   rabbinic literature, Canaanites, halakhah, Israel
