  • Sephardism: Spanish Jewish History and the Modern Literary Imagination ed.
           by Yael Halevi-Wise
    • Abstract: <p>By Nina B. Lichtenstein</p> There are several noteworthy books written on the Jews of Sepharad, their history, identity and world of convivencia as it vanished with the expulsion from Spain in 1492. The cultural heritage and legacy of Sephardic Jews have been treasured and documented together with a steady interest in their historical and geographical trajectories following the expulsion. Identified, categorized and memorialized. However, as noted by Jordan Elgrably of the Levantine Center, "Until recently, we [Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews] have been taught to see ourselves as shadowy figures on the margins of Jewish society—the relics of a colorful history, excellent for classroom review but absolutely irrelevant today." Along comes ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Jews of Italy, 1848-1915: Between Tradition and Transformation by
           Elizabeth Schächter
    • Abstract: <p>By Shira Klein</p> A well-funded library could fill dozens of bookshelves with monographs on modern French Jewish history, but it would need a fraction of that space to stack the books available on the recent Italian Jewish past. Although Italian readers have more choices than English audiences, even their options are mostly limited to histories of particular Jewish communities or specific organizations. Studies spanning the peninsula's Jewish population as a whole are rare. As a result, sweeping histories of modern Jewish history, such as those by Lloyd Gartner or David Vital, contain few references to Italian Jewry. Elizabeth Schächter is one of several scholars who have recently set out to fill this gap. Her book, The Jews of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Isaiah Berlin: The Journey of a Jewish Liberal by Arie M. Dubnov
    • Abstract: <p>By Noam Pianko</p> What, if anything, is Jewish about Sir Isaiah Berlin's philosophy' Just asking the question at the heart of Arie M. Dubnov's intellectual biography of the great British public intellectual, Isaiah Berlin: The Journey of a Jewish Liberal, sparks a potentially fertile and largely untapped direction for the study of Jewish identities.The question of the role of Jewishness in the intellectual development of Jewish public intellectuals with little explicit connection to Judaism in their published work falls between two fields of study. Scholars of Jewish history tend to ignore these figures because their intellectual projects and personal involvements do not explicitly address Jewish communities, issues, or concerns. ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Birth of Conservative Judaism: Solomon Schechter's Disciples and
           the Creation of an American Religious Movement by Michael R. Cohen
    • Abstract: <p>By Rachel Kranson</p> Michael Cohen's The Birth of Conservative Judaism: Solomon Schechter's Disciples and the Creation of an American Religious Movement offers a valuable corrective to accepted narratives about the origins and development of Conservative Judaism. Arguing against those scholars who traced the start of the Conservative movement back to nineteenth century Europe, as well as against Marshall Sklare's 1955 claim that the postwar American laity was entirely responsible for its rise, Cohen focuses instead on Solomon Schechter and his disciples as the architects of the new denomination. Schechter and his followers, Cohen convincingly argues, built the institutional infrastructure of Conservative Judaism in the first half of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Jews and Booze: Becoming American in the Age of Prohibition by Marni Davis
    • Abstract: <p>By Daniel Greene</p> In addition to sporting one of the most memorable titles among recent academic books, Marni Davis's Jews and Booze: Becoming American in the Age of Prohibition entertains readers with the exploits of Jewish moonshiners, Bavarian Jewish winemakers, and rabbis who supplemented their incomes as bootleggers. Perhaps most entertaining is Izzy Einstein, the Jewish Prohibition agent who, with his partner Moe Smith, made more than 4,300 arrests of Prohibition violators, sometimes while dressed as "musicians, society dandies, pickle peddlers, college athletes" and even as "a bourgeois couple (Moe donned the dress and cloche hat) out for a night on the town." (179) Einstein briefly became a phenomenon, gaining a modicum of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Jewish Art: A Modern History by Samantha Baskind and Larry Silver
    • Abstract: <p>By Paul B. Jaskot</p> What is, after all, "Jewish art"' It can't be merely art made by Jews, since for every Jewish artist who has depicted a scene from the Torah there are just as many if not more Jewish artists who have worked with subject matter and in stylistic trends indistinguishable from their non-Jewish brethren. Particularly in the early modern and modern period, talking about a Jewish artist is often as relevant as talking about a Munich artist or an Irish artist: the ethnic, religious, or geographic distinctions are, of course, important for a social history of art, but they vary in terms of whether and when they are determining factors. The great president of the Prussian Academy of Art, Max Liebermann, certainly painted ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Living Memory
    • Abstract: <p>By Laura Levitt</p> In writing about my return visit to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) in American Jewish Loss after the Holocaust (2007), I became aware of the ways in which our engagements with Holocaust monuments, museums and memorials change over time. Revisiting Yaffa Eliach's photographic memorial, the Tower of Faces, I was struck by how differently I experienced this compelling memorial. I saw things I had not previously seen while more familiar elements of the memorial became less compelling. As a way of explaining, I drew an analogy to reading: "Like texts we read and reread, our ongoing encounters with monuments and memorials are also not static...we see and experience different things over time. Our ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Banality of Goodness Collaboration and Compromise in the Rescue of
           Denmark's Jews1
    • Abstract: <p>By Ethan J. Hollander</p> Never stand so high upon a principle that you cannot lower it to suit the circumstances.The rescue of the Jews of Denmark is the stuff of legend. Books and movies, authors, and even scholars have long reflected on what some have called "the most remarkable chapter in human history"—when tiny Denmark stood up to the most powerfully evil regime in human history, refused to bow to its pressure, and in the nick of time, ferried over 7,000 Jews (nearly the entire Jewish population) to safety in neighboring Sweden.No doubt, the story is remarkable—especially when seen in the light of more ordinarily-tragic events in Norway. But with time, the legend of "little Dunkirk" has grown even larger than the events which ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Reflecting His Time: Nineteenth-Century European Anti-Semitic Stereotypes
           in Jurji Zaydan's 1903 Arabic Novel, The Conquest of al-Andalus
    • Abstract: <p>By Amaya Martin</p> Myths and stereotypes about Jews and the Jewish community as a whole have existed for at least two thousand years. In Europe, they spread widely and acquired negative connotations after Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. The Jews were known as "having killed Christ" and for being the devil's allies, and were accused of avarice, cruelty, and following strange rituals. As a minority who resisted conversion, they were often demonized and attacked by religious authorities in Christian-majority countries. The French Revolution of the late eighteenth century opened a new stage in the elaboration and development of these myths and stereotypes. What has been called "the Jewish world conspiracy" ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Candles over Troubled Water: Sefer Hama'asim and Agnon's
           Unfinished Business
    • Abstract: <p>By Moshe Goultschin</p> The stories in Shmuel Yosef Agnon's Sefer Hama'asim are particularly enigmatic, and of them, it can be safely said that "Hanerot" (The Candles) is one of the most opaque and perplexing. The story's plot details the unfolding attempt of a characteristic Agnon protagonist to immerse in the sea just prior to the onset of the Sabbath—an attempt doomed to failure not because of any shortcoming on his part, but rather the result of a pre-ordained decree effective against him, one that he can neither understand nor resist. In this article, we will attempt to understand this decree and its roots in Agnon's biography as an emerging writer. Specifically, we will attempt to understand the story in light of Agnon's unrealized ... <a href="">Read More</a>
