  • JPS B'nai Mitzvah Torah Commentaryby Jeffrey K. Salkin

    The Jewish Publication Society 2017; US$ 29.95

    For too many Jewish young people, bar/bat mitzvah has been the beginning of the end of their Jewish journeys. When students perceive the Torah as incomprehensible or irrelevant, many form the false impression that Judaism has nothing to say to them. Enter the game-changer: the JPS B?nai Mitzvah Torah Commentary shows teens in their own language... more...

  • Justice for Allby Jeremiah Unterman

    The Jewish Publication Society 2017; US$ 35.00

    Justice for All demonstrates that the Jewish Bible, by radically changing the course of ethical thought, came to exercise enormous influence on Jewish thought and law and also laid the basis for Christian ethics and the broader development of modern Western civilization. Jeremiah Unterman shows us persuasively that the ethics of the Jewish Bible... more...

  • Kingship and Memory in Ancient Judahby Ian D. Wilson

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 97.99

    Kingship and Memory in Ancient Judah investigates kingship in Judean discourse, particularly in the early Second Temple era.

  • Are We Not Men?by Rhiannon Graybill

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 72.99

    Are We Not Men? offers an innovative approach to gender and embodiment in the Hebrew Bible. Graybill argues that the male body is a source of difficulty for the Hebrew prophets. This very instability of prophetic masculinity makes possible new understandings of biblical masculinity, as the prophetic body is revealed as a queer body. more...

  • Theory and Practice in Essene Lawby Aryeh Amihay

    Presenting a novel approach for the study of law in the Dead Sea Scrolls, this book is conveniently divided into concepts and practices, highlighting the discrepancies between the two.
