    Stanford University Press 2012; US$ 60.00

    Contemplative Nation challenges the long-standing view that theology is not a vital part of the Jewish tradition. For political and philosophical reasons, both scholars of Judaism and Jewish thinkers have sought to minimize the role of theology in Judaism. This book constructs a new model for understanding Jewish theological language that emphasizes... more...

  • Der jüdische Messianismus im Zeitalter der Emanzipationby George Y. Kohler

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 182.00

    During the first half of the 19th century, traditional Jewish conceptions of the Messiah underwent a profound reinterpretation. In place of the vision of a messianic king, new ideas arose about an ideal world. G. Kohler demonstrates that this new reading of Jewish messianism did not originate from the works of the philosopher Hermann Cohen, but instead,... more...

  • Pledges of Jewish Allegianceby David Ellenson; Daniel Gordis

    Since the late 1700s, when the Jewish community ceased to be a semiautonomous political unit in Western Europe and the United States and individual Jews became integrated?culturally, socially, and politically?into broader society, questions surrounding Jewish status and identity have occupied a prominent and contentious place in Jewish legal discourse.... more...

  • Holinessby Hannah K. Harrington

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 43.95

    In this in-depth exploration of holiness in the context of rabbinic Judaism, Hannah K. Harrington places the rabbinic concept of holiness alongside other notions of the sacred in the Graeco-Roman world. Holistic and yet detailed, this volume provides a much-needed comparative view of this subject during a key period in the development of the Jewish... more...

  • The Female Face of God in Auschwitzby Melissa Raphael

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 51.95

    The dominant theme of post-Holocaust Jewish theology has been that of the temporary hiddenness of God, interpreted either as a divine mystery or, more commonly, as God's deferral to human freedom. But traditional Judaic obligations of female presence, together with the traditional image of the Shekhinah as a figure of God's 'femaleness' accompanying... more...

  • God of Abrahamby Lenn Evan Goodman

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 134.99

    Drawing on a wealth of traditional and philosophical material, mainly from Jewish sources, this treatise shows how human values illuminate the idea of God, which in turn sheds light on our value concerns. more...

  • Judaism, Human Rights, and Human Valuesby Lenn E. Goodman

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 109.99

    In this addition to the field of Jewish ethics, Goodman argues that the Jewish tradition has a significant contribution to make to the general discourse on ethical issues. Refuting the notion that "human rights" is a modern issue, he traces the idea of such rights to biblical sources. more...

  • Searching for a Distant Godby Kenneth Seeskin

    Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 109.99

    Monotheism is usually considered Judaism's greatest contribution to world culture, but it is far from clear what monotheism is. This work examines the notion that monotheism is not so much a claim about the number of God as a claim about the nature of God. more...

  • The Early History of Heavenby J. Edward

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 50.00

    How and why did Western cultures come to imagine the heavenly realm as they do? This volume traces the history of speculation about heaven and discovers that the Hebrew texts that fed Jewish and Christian notions were deeply influenced by images drawn from the surrounding cultures. more...
