"The eighteen studies in this volume in honor of Moshe Bernstein on the occasion of his 70th birthday mostly engage with Jewish scriptural interpretation, the principal theme of Bernstein's own research career as expressed in his collected essays, Reading and Re-Reading Scripture at Qumran (Brill, 2013). The essays develop a variety of aspects of scriptural interpretation. Although many of them are chiefly concerned with the Dead Sea Scrolls, the significant contribution of the volume as a whole is the way that even those studies are associated with others that consider the broader context of Jewish scriptural interpretation in late antiquity. As a result, a wider frame of reference for scriptural interpretation impacts upon how scripture was read and re-read in the scrolls from Qumran"--Jacket.

This is the first comprehensive history of the pietistic movement that shaped modern Judaism. The book's unique blend of intellectual, religious, and social history offers perspectives on the movement's leaders as well as its followers, and demonstrates that, far from being a throwback to the Middle Ages, Hasidism is a product of modernity that forged its identity as a radical alternative to the secular world. Hasidism originated in southeastern Poland, in mystical circles centered on the figure of Israel Baal Shem Tov, but it was only after his death in 1760 that a movement began to spread. Challenging the notion that Hasidism ceased to be a creative movement after the eighteenth century, this book argues that its first golden age was in the nineteenth century, when it conquered new territory, won a mass following, and became a mainstay of Jewish Orthodoxy. World War I, the Russian Revolution, and the Holocaust decimated eastern European Hasidism. But following World War II, the movement enjoyed a second golden age, growing exponentially. Today, it is witnessing a remarkable renaissance in Israel, the United States, and other countries around the world. Written by an international team of scholars, Hasidism is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand this vibrant and influential modern Jewish movement.

  • Secret societies in ancient Judaism
  • "Esoteric", mysteries, and secrecy
  • Esoteric as a social category
  • The social organization of secrecy
  • Initiation and graded revelation
  • Other secret Jewish groups and traditions
  • The social setting of esoteric tradition.
Secret Groups in Ancient Judaism proposes a new approach to the understanding of many Jewish groups and sects from the last centuries BCE and the first centuries CE. Michael Stone argues that the known ancient Jewish groups-the Qumran covenanters, Josephus's and Philo's Essenes, and Philo's Therapeutae-can be viewed as societies at the heart of whose existence were esoteric knowledge and practice. Guarding and transmitting this esoteric knowledge and practice, Stone argues, provided the dynamic that motivated the social and conceptual structure of these groups. Analyzing these groups as secret societies enables us to see previously latent social structural dimensions, and provides many new enriching insights into the groups, including the Dead Sea covenanters. Drawing on sociological analyses of secret societies, Stone also compares these Jewish groups with mystery religions of the contemporary Greek and Roman world, and of early Christianity. His approach casts a powerful new light on ancient Jewish religious groups and highlights unstudied aspects of the world of Christian origins.

The present volume offers a critical edition of the Hebrew texts, accompanied by English translation and commentary of Reshit Hokhmah (Beginning of Wisdom) and Mishpetei ha-Mazzalot (Judgments of the Zodiacal Signs) by Abraham Ibn Ezra (ca. 1089-ca. 1161). The first, the summa and by far the longest of his astrological works, the target of the most cross-references from the rest of that corpus and the most influential, enjoyed the widest circulation among Jews in the Middle Ages and after. The second, by contrast, is the most obscure. It is never referred to elsewhere by its author and is the only work for which Ibn Ezra's authorship must be substantiated. Reshit Hokhmah and Mishpetei ha-Mazzalot were written in order to explain concepts common to the various branches of astrology that Ibn Ezra addressed elsewhere and to elucidate the worldview that underlies astrology. These two treatises are the richest and most varied with regard to the astrological information they present. Reshit Hokhmah and Mishpetei ha-Mazzalot also exemplify the close collaboration between astronomy and astrology in medieval science and are the two components of Ibn Ezra's astrological corpus with the most extensive, comprehensive, and significant astronomical content.

"This study, the first in its scope of transgender religiosity, explores the entanglements of gender and religion in the lives of 13 transgender participants with a Jewish Orthodox background (formerly and currently Orthodox). To that end, this study presents a series of themes distributed among three central periods in the participants' lives: pre-transition, transition and post-transition. The findings detail the way s in which gender and religion were negotiated by the participants through what is described as dislocations and reversal stories. Gendered religious practices, a key feature of Orthodox Judaism figure prominently in the analysis." -- Back cover.

"Amira est le nom qu'on donna au Messie Sabbataï Tsevi qui naquit le 1 er août 1626 à Smyrne (Izmir) en Turquie. C'était un jour de Shabbat, d'où son prénom : S(h)abbataï ; c'était aussi un 9 av dans le calendrier hébraïque le jour où furent détruits les deux temples de Jérusalem et où serait née l'âme du sauveur. Au terme d'un cursus d'études somme toute normal, il se passionna pour la kabbale, se posa en Messie et au terme de plusieurs années de pérégrinations, fut reconnu comme tel par un kabbaliste de Gaza qui passait pour un thaumaturge intègre et populaire. La nouvelle se propagea comme une traînée de poudre à travers les communautés de la Diaspora. Elle ne venait pas d'un nouveau prétendant au titre de Messie, mais d'un prophète qui maîtrisait la science kabbalistique des âmes. L'excitation fut telle qu'en certains lieux, comme en Ecosse et à Avignon, on se préparait à émigrer en Terre sainte. Sabbataï Tsevi gagna à sa cause des rabbins et des lettrés de renom. En Italie, en Allemagne, au Maroc, en Hollande. Il n'est pas jusqu'au philosophe Spinoza qui ne fût intrigué par l'enthousiasme messianique qui s'empara de l'ensemble des communautés juives. Le Messie abolit la loi rabbinique et se rendit à Istanbul où les autorités ottomanes l'arrêtèrent. Quand il comparut devant le sultan, il choisit de se convertir à l'Islam. Jamais avant Sabbataï Tsevi, un candidat-Messie n'emporta autant d'adhésion, jamais il ne déçut autant. La mésaventure sab-bataïste trahissait une dialectique messianique qui ne cessa d'intriguer les chercheurs et d'inquiéter les partisans du sionisme. Ce livre reconstitue les péripéties du Messie de Smyrne et s'interroge sur leurs répercussions sur la théologie du judaïsme."--Page 4 of cover.

"André Neher (1914-1988) est sans doute l'un des penseurs francophones juifs les plus importants du XXe siècle. Fondateur du département des études hébraïques et juives à l'université de Strasbourg, il fut, avec Emmanuel Levinas et Léon Ashkenazi, l'un des chefs de file de l'école de pensée juive de Paris. Rabbin et intellectuel engagé qui émigra en Israël après la guerre des Six Jours, André Neher n'eut de cesse de penser les défis que les temps contemporains posaient au judaïsme et de manière plus générale à la pensée. Son oeuvre, indissociable de sa vie, éclaire un moment de l'histoire intellectuelle et politique du judaïsme français dans son rapport à la Shoah, à la culture française et à ses institutions, et à l'État d'Israël. Ce volume, qui retrace des aspects méconnus de son parcours, explore les voies ouvertes par sa réflexion singulière, à la croisée du discours universitaire et de celui de l'intellectuel. Deux générations se côtoient ici pour attester la vitalité de sa pensée, des disciples directs ou indirects aux jeunes chercheurs."--Page 4 of cover.

The Art of Jewish Pastoral Counseling provides a clear, practical guide to working with congregants in a range of settings and illustrates the skills and core principles needed for effective pastoral counseling. The material is drawn from Jewish life and rabbinic pastoral counseling, but the fundamental principles in these pages apply to all faith traditions and to a wide variety of counselling relationships. Drawing on relational psychodynamic ideas but writing in a very accessible style, Friedman and Yehuda cover when, how and why counseling may be sought, how to set up sessions, conduct the work in those sessions and deal with difficult situations, maintain confidentiality, conduct groupwork and approach traumatic and emotive subjects. They guide the reader through the foundational principles and topics of pastoral counseling and illustrate the journey with accessible and lively vignettes. By using real life examples accompanied by guided questions, the authors help readers to learn practical techniques as well as gain greater self-awareness of their own strengths and vulnerabilities. With a host of examples from pastoral and clinical experience, this book will be invaluable to anyone offering counselling to both the Jewish community and those of other faiths. The Art of Jewish Pastoral Counseling will appeal to psychoanalysts, particularly those working with Jewish clients, counselors, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and rabbis offering pastoral counseling, as well as clergy of other faiths such as ministers, priests, imams and lay chaplains.
