Cover of "Jewish History and Jewish Memory."Elisheva Carlebach, John M. Efron and David M. Myers, eds.

“The list of contributors to this volume constitutes a virtual 'Who's Who' of contemporary Jewish historiography: Robert Chazan, Marc Saperstein and Talya Fishman write about the pre-modern period; Moshe Idel focuses on time and history in Kabbalah; Elliot Wolfson addresses the construction of history in the Zohar; Todd Endelman confronts the way that Jewish pasts continued to limit the possibilities of converts from Judaism to Christianity in the post-Emancipation world; and Michael Meyer reflects on Jewish modernization. Though written in academese, there are important insights in these writings.” Tikkun
