  • Hebräischby Martin Krause; Michael Pietsch; Martin Rösel

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 839.00

    The Grammar is intended as a textbook to support Hebrew classes which gives the teachers the maximum latitude for the selection and application of different teaching methods and for the students simplifies the tasks of learning, looking up and repetition with its clear and transparent ordering of the teaching material. In its design, the work dispenses... more...

  • Sanctuary in the Wildernessby Alan Mintz

    Stanford University Press 2011; US$ 65.00

    The effort to create a serious Hebrew literature in the United States in the years around World War I is one of the best kept secrets of American Jewish history. Hebrew had been revived as a modern literary language in nineteenth-century Russia and then taken to Palestine as part of the Zionist revolution. But the overwhelming majority of Jewish emigrants... more...

  • In the Beginningby Joel Hoffman

    NYU Press 2004; US$ 65.00

    Hebrew as a language is just over 3,000 years old, and the story of its alphabet is unique among the languages of the world. Hebrew set the stage for almost every modern alphabet, and was arguably the first written language simple enough for everyone, not just scribes, to learn, making it possible to make a written record available to the masses for... more...

  • Sworn Enemiesby C. A. Strine

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 140.00

    This book explains how Ezekiel uses formulaic language from the exodus origin tradition to craft an identity for the Judahite exiles that refutes an autochthonous origin tradition preferred by the non-exiled Judahites. The book addresses a number of key questions: the relationship between the exodus and patriarchal traditions, Ezekiel?s contribution... more...

  • Yiddishby Miriam Weinstein

    Steerforth Press 2012; US$ 16.99

    This first-ever popular history of Yiddish is so full of life that it reads like a biography of the language. For a thousand years Yiddish was the glue that held a people together. Through the intimacies of daily use, it linked European Jews with their heroic past, their spiritual universe, their increasingly far-flung relations. In it they produced... more...

  • A Goy Who Speaks Yiddishby Aya Elyada

    Stanford University Press 2012; US$ 60.00

    This book explores the unique phenomenon of Christian engagement with Yiddish language and literature from the beginning of the sixteenth century to the late eighteenth century.

  • The Eighteenth-Century Language Text of Jüdischer Sprach-meisterby Jordan D Finkin

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2009; US$ 159.95

    Though little studied, this text is important not only for the fields of Yiddish literature and linguistics, where it offers a lengthy continuous text in a language lacking a particularly robust corpus, but also for the history of German-Jewish relations, highlighted by the irony of an anti-Semitic work preserving a Yiddish linguistic resource. The... more...

  • Yehuda Amichaiby Nili Scharf Gold

    Brandeis University Press 2009; US$ 24.99

    An astonishing revision of the prevailing critical analysis of the poetry of Yehuda Amichai, based on newly discovered materials more...

  • Writing in Greek But Thinking in Aramaicby C. Leslie Reiter

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2012; US$ 159.95

    In this monograph the author investigates the syntactic construction found in the Semitic languages known as verbal coordination as it relates to the translation and therefore the interpretation of the scriptures. In the course of his analysis, the author also discusses grammaticalization that has occurred to translate the function of the word from... more...
