Bo Giertz draws upon the exegetical insights that he received from his mentor, Anton Fridrichsen, before, during, and after his trip to Palestine in the early 1930s. This audiobook is a third-person retelling of the gospels that brings into account various Old Testament references and contemporary interpretations of those passages by the Jews of Jesus' day. It also brings into account contemporary events throughout the Roman Empire, most especially those directly affecting the Jewish people of Israel at the time, so that the gospel stories take on new life and meaning for the listener. It's both a harmonization of the gospels and a commentary on them, but much richer. The perspectives change depending on the episode. Sometimes the perspective is from that of a disciple, sometimes from that of a person being healed or a bystander observing. The Christmas story is told from the perspective of Shepherds, the Crucifixion scene dwells on the perspective of Simon of Cyrene. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Greenberg.

Most fans don't know how far the Jewish presence in baseball extends beyond a few famous players such as Greenberg, Rosen, Koufax, Holtzman, Green, Ausmus, Youkilis, Braun, and Kinsler. In fact, that presence extends to the baseball commissioner Bud Selig, labor leaders Marvin Miller and Don Fehr, owners Jerry Reinsdorf and Stuart Sternberg, officials Theo Epstein and Mark Shapiro, sportswriters Murray Chass, Ross Newhan, Ira Berkow, and Roger Kahn, and even famous Jewish baseball fans like Alan Dershowitz and Barney Frank. The life stories of these and many others, on and off the field, have been compiled from nearly 50 in-depth interviews and arranged by decade in this edifying and entertaining work of oral and cultural history. In American Jews and America's Game, each person talks about growing up Jewish and dealing with Jewish identity, assimilation, intermarriage, future viability, religious observance, anti-Semitism, and Israel. Each tells about being in the midst of the colorful pantheon of players who, over the past 75 years or more, have made baseball what it is. Their stories tell, as no previous book has, the history of the larger-than-life role of Jews in America's pastime. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Davidson.

Description: ''Love your neighbor'' is the central obligation of Jewish life. Mussar, a late nineteenth-century Jewish renewal movement, focused on this precept as a means of self-improvement and spiritual growth. Through the practical applications of Mussar, one can learn how to awaken to a spirituality that is compassionate, moral, and generous. In this book, Rabbi Ira Stone provides a contemporary theological framework for understanding Mussar and describes how participation in a Mussar group can offer support and guidance for this powerful spiritual practice. Endorsements: ''This book is a marvelous gift to a generation seeking new spiritual paths in order to live a richly Jewish and deeply human life. Ira Stone uncovers a neglected treasure in modern Judaism, the nineteenth-century Mussar movement, which sought to develop the human being into a mensch by reuniting mitzvot and morality. Stone gives us his postmodern theology of Mussar, and guides us through its theory of the process of self-development using its methods of self-improvement. In a final tour de force Stone shows how, in the mode of Mussar, prayer and halakah awaken our spirit and teach us to concretize God's love and our love for fellow human belngs. This book is a treasure to be read and reread.'' -Rabbi Irving Greenberg, President, Jewish Life Network/Steinhardt Foundation ''Sometimes we know how to act morally but we lack the strength of character or motivation to do it. The Mussar movement developed in Judaism to help us do what we know is right. This book is a wonderfully clear and helpful exposition of one form of Mussar. As such, it has the power to do nothing less than improve our moral character and change our lives for the better.'' -Rabbi Elliot Dorff, author of To Do the Right and the Good ''Here you will find hidden gems of the authentic, time-tested Jewish spiritual tradition of Mussar--and be shown steps you can seek to open your own heart. Rabbi Stone passionately reminds us that when we extend our hand to help another bear her burden, the pathway to the Beloved we seek opens before us.'' -Alan Morinis, author of Climbing Jacob's Ladder ''Ira Stone gives us a lucid and thoughtful account of the writings of the great Mussar teachers. His passion and compassion are apparent on every page, as he conveys his vision of a contemporary Jewish ethical practice. This book deals with vital issues, such as the spiritual imperative of responsibility for the other in a way that is both philosophically cogent and accessible. A fine study. -Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg, author of Genesis: The Beginning of Desire About the Contributor(s): Ira F. Stone is rabbi of Temple Beth Zion-Beth Israel in Philadelphia and founder of the Philadelphia Mussar Institute. He has taught at the Jewish Theological Seminary and currently teaches at Recontructionist Rabbinical College. Rabbi Stone is the author of Seeking the Path to Life, Reading Levinas/Reading Talmud, and two volumes of poetry.

The Edward Lewis Wallant Award was founded by the family of Dr. Irving and Fran Waltman in 1963 and is supported by the University of Hartford's Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies. It is given annually to an American writer, preferably early in his or her career, whose fiction is considered significant for American Jews. In The New Diaspora: The Changing Landscape of American Jewish Fiction, editors Victoria Aarons, Avinoam J. Patt, and Mark Shechner, who have all served as judges for the award, present vital, original, and wide-ranging fiction by writers whose work has been considered or selected for the award. The resulting collection highlights the exemplary place of the Wallant Award in Jewish literature. With a mix of stories and novel chapters, The New Diaspora reprints selections of short fiction from such well-known writers as Rebecca Goldstein, Nathan Englander, Jonathan Safran Foer, Dara Horn, Julie Orringer, and Nicole Krauss. The first half of the anthology presents pieces by winners of the Wallant award, focusing on the best work of recent winners. The New Diaspora's second half reflects the evolving landscape of American Jewish fiction over the last fifty years, as many authors working in America are not American by birth, and their fiction has become more experimental in nature. Pieces in this section represent authors with roots all over the world-including Russia (Maxim Shrayer, Nadia Kalman, and Lara Vapnyar), Latvia (David Bezmozgis), South Africa (Tony Eprile), Canada (Robert Majzels), and Israel (Avner Mandelman, who now lives in Canada). This collection offers an expanded canon of Jewish writing in North America and foregrounds a vision of its variety, its uniqueness, its cosmopolitanism, and its evolving perspectives on Jewish life. It celebrates the continuing vitality and fresh visions of contemporary Jewish writing, even as it highlights its debt to history and embrace of collective memory. Readers of contemporary American fiction and Jewish cultural history will find The New Diaspora enlightening and deeply engaging.

Yehezkel Kaufmann / Reinvention Jewish Biblical...

The biblical scholar, historian, and Jewish thinker Yehezkel Kaufmann (1889-1963) is best known for two magisterial works: a two-volume interpretation of Jewish history, Golah ve-nekhar (Exile and Alienation, 1928-1932), and a four-volume study of biblical religion, Toledot ha-emunah ha-yisre'elit (A History of the Israelite Faith, 1937-1956). Toledot in particular is the most monumental achievement of modern Jewish biblical scholarship. No other figure, not even Martin Buber, has had such a profound influence on the work of Jewish scholars of the Bible. Whether by supporting his ideas with new evidence, modifying them in light of new discoveries or methods, or attacking them, and whether addressing his work explicitly or implicitly, a substantial amount of modern Jewish biblical criticism builds upon the foundation set by Kaufmann. The latter's phenomenological analysis of biblical monotheism as well as his critique of theoretical and methodological assumptions that are still dominant in historical studies in general, and biblical scholarship in particular, are an invaluable asset for those who engage in biblical scholarship, historical studies, and comparative religion. The idea of this volume was conceived at an international symposium held in Switzerland, from June 10-11, 2014, 'Yehezkel Kaufmann and the Reinvention of Jewish Exegesis of the Bible in Bern.' This gathering was held at the Universities of Bern and of Fribourg in order to commemorate the centenary of Yehezkel Kaufmann's matriculation at the University of Bern on May 5, 1914, and to document and reassess the significance of his legacy and its reception. The symposium had three foci, corresponding with sections I-III of this volume: Kaufmann's biography and intellectual background, his impact on Jewish studies, and his contribution to modern biblical scholarship. The volume provides a comprehensive and multi-faceted account of Kaufmann's work, through which Anglophone readers, students and scholars alike, can explore the hitherto unrecognized significance and profundity of Kaufmann's legacy. It includes not only the symposium papers but also other essays, including two testimonies by two of his students, Menahem Haran and Moshe Greenberg and some of Kaufmann's own writings-all heretofore unavailable in English-that are crucial for a fuller appreciation of his life project. Contributors: Job Y. Jindo, Lawrence Kaplan, Othmar Keel, Israel Knohl, Thomas Krapf, Adrian Schenker, Benjamin D. Sommer, Thomas Staubli, Nili Wazana and Ziony Zevit.
