Judaism by Arthur Hertzberg

Book Description

The classic overview of the Jewish religion, updated to address such contemporary issues as the rights of women, medical ethics, the Holocaust, Arabs and Jews, homosexuality, and more, integrated with the earlier writings on the key ideas of Judaism: the chosen people, the Law, God, the Holy Land, the cycle of the year, prayer, immortality, sin and atonement, the nature of man, and the purpose of creation. In his interpretations of the contemporary controversies, Arthur Hertzberg provided moving testimony to the integrity of the Jewish spirit through the ages. Many of the discussions of the first edition were rewritten to take account of the various forms of Judaism in the last two centuries, whether Orthodox, Conservative, or Reform. This book was the result of a lifetime of study and reflection by one of the most distinguished authorities on Judaism. Rabbi Hertzberg offered the contemporary reader a coherent and meaningful account of one of the world's great religions.

Books By Author Arthur Hertzberg

Denying History by Arthur Hertzberg Denying History, Paperback (April 2009)

Takes a look at those who say the Holocaust never happened and explores the motivations behind such claims. This work shows how we can be certain that the Holocaust happened and, for that matter, how we can confirm any historical event.

Jew in America by Arthur Hertzberg Jew in America, Paperback (October 2003)

The story of the Jewish scholar and leader recounts his life as it reflects the Jewish experience of the past century.

Holocaust by Arthur Hertzberg Holocaust, Paperback (March 2000)

Germany's leading Holocaust scholar has crafted a concise, well-written, and powerful introduction to the subject, concluding with a discussion of what the Germans knew about the genocide.

French Enlightenment and the Jews by Arthur Hertzberg French Enlightenment and the Jews, Paperback (October 1990)

Hertzberg develops his daring thesis that the "modern, secular, anti-Semitism was fashioned not as a reaction to the Enlightenment and the Revolution, but within the Enlightenment and Revolution themselves." He finds that modern anti-Semitism owes less to Christian theological mentality than to doctrinaire libertarianism of figures such as Voltaire, d'Holbach, Diderot, and Marat.
