Author: Simon Rawidowicz
Editor: Bernjamin C.I. Ravid
Foreword: Michael A. Meyer

Series: Tauber Institute Series for the Study of European Jewry

This readable, insightful and thought-provoking collection of essays, presents an original and innovative ideology that stirringly affirms the unity of the Jewish people. Rawidowicz’s rich themes include the relationship between the State of Israel and the Diaspora; Jewish “difference” and its repercussions; Jewish learning; and Jewish continuity in the post-Holocaust world. In his foreword to the paper edition, Michael A. Meyer writes, “Forty years after his death, (Rawidowicz’s) sober analyses, his realism with regard to both the State of Israel and the Diaspora, and his striving to find unities among dichotomies that divide the Jewish people — all of these make his images and ideas still worthy of our reflection.”
