Pius War

In the brutal fight that has raged in recent years over the reputation of Pope Pius XII_leader of the Catholic Church during World War II, the Holocaust, and the early years of the Cold War the task of defending the Pope has fallen primarily to reviewers. These reviewers formulated a brilliant response to the attack on Pius, but their work was scattered in various newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals_making it nearly impossible for the average reader to gauge the results. In The Pius War, Weekly Standard's Joseph Bottum has joined with Rabbi David G. Dalin to gather a representative and powerful sample of these reviews, deliberately chosen from a wide range of publications. Together with a team of professors, historians, and other experts, the reviewers conclusively investigate the claims attacking Pius XII. The Pius War, and a detailed annotated bibliography that follows, will prove to be a definitive tool for scholars and students_destined to become a major resource for anyone interested in questions of Catholicism, the Holocaust, and World War II.

Rabbis Of Our Time

The term ‘rabbi’ predominantly denotes Jewish men qualified to interpret the Torah and apply halacha, or those entrusted with the religious leadership of a Jewish community. However, the role of the rabbi has been understood differently across the Jewish world. While in Israel they control legally powerful rabbinical courts and major religious political parties, in the Jewish communities of the Diaspora this role is often limited by legal regulations of individual countries. However, the significance of past and present rabbis and their religious and political influence endures across the world. Rabbis of Our Time provides a comprehensive overview of the most influential rabbinical authorities of Judaism in the 20th and 21st Century. Through focussing on the most theologically influential rabbis of the contemporary era and examining their political impact, it opens a broader discussion of the relationship between Judaism and politics. It looks at the various centres of current Judaism and Jewish thinking, especially the State of Israel and the USA, as well as locating rabbis in various time periods. Through interviews and extracts from religious texts and books authored by rabbis, readers will discover more about a range of rabbis, from those before the formation of Israel to the most famous Chief Rabbis of Israel, as well as those who did not reach the highest state religious functions, but influenced the relation between Judaism and Israel by other means. The rabbis selected represent all major contemporary streams of Judaism, from ultra-Orthodox/Haredi to Reform and Liberal currents, and together create a broader picture of the scope of contemporary Jewish thinking in a theological and political context. An extensive and detailed source of information on the varieties of Jewish thinking influencing contemporary Judaism and the modern State of Israel, this book is of interest to students and scholars of Jewish Studies, as well as Religion and Politics.

Barcelona & Beyond
84,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In late July 1263 a public disputation was convened by King James I of Aragon, pitting Friar Paul Christian against the distinguished rabbi of Gerona, Moses ben Nahman. Organized by leading figures in the Dominican Order to give Friar Paul an opportunity to test his innovative missionizing argumentation against a worthy opponent, the spectacle in Barcelona was colorful, impressive, surely somewhat frightening to the Jews, and ultimately indecisive. Both sides claimed victory, and their documented claims have given rise to substantial disagreement among historians over the tone and outcome of this important event. Robert Chazan's masterly analysis reconstructs the Barcelona disputation from the conflicting Christian and Jewish sources and sets it in its broad historical context, with particular attention to the post-disputation maneuvers on both sides. His richly detailed account focuses on Rabbi ben Nahman's eloquent efforts to reassure his fellow Jews in the face of new missionizing pressures.

The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzh...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Read the shocking story that the media have ignored and covered up. In 2007, two Israeli news publications, Israel Today and News First Class reported that the most famous Rabbi in Israel's modern history, 108-year-old Yitzhak Kaduri, had left a cryptic death note revealing the name of the long-awaited Messiah. Within a year after the rabbi's death, the note was reported to have been verified as authentic by some of Kaduri's closest followers and then placed on Kaduri's own website (Kaduri.net). The purported Kaduri message proclaimed that Messiah's name was Yehoshua, or Jesus. Its significance shocked the religious world. Shortly thereafter the furor began. The note immediately disappeared from Kaduri's website. The media refused to report further upon the matter. The Kaduri family, and several others close to the Kaduri ministry, began to claim that the note was a forgery or a mere fabrication - a cruel joke. Now, author, senior pastor, radio talk show host, and former law enforcement officer Carl Gallups, uses his biblical knowledge and journalistic and investigative skills to explore the matter inside and out. His thorough and balanced reporting of the documented facts of the case will astound you. Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of The Harbinger, several renowned biblical experts, as well as former students of Kaduri's rabbinical training school weigh in on the case. Gallup's exciting detailed reporting reaches startling conclusions that will amaze you. Mystical death-curses, visions of Messiah, an important world political figure under threat, religious leaders in shock, a cryptic death note, and more, this story is shocking, it is true and it is still unfolding. Did Rabbi Kaduri actually see and identify the real Messiah? From the publishers and the movie studio that brought you the best-selling documentary The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment comes the story of The Rabbi Who Found Messiah .

Zwischen Tradition und Häresie

The study by Nathanael Riemer focuses on the work Beer Sheva (Seven Wells) which was written in Yiddish by Rabbi Beer Shmuel Issachar and his wife Bella Perlhefter of Prague at the turn of the seventeenth to the eighteenth century. As a book of remembrance and consolation it was dedicated to the couple's seven deceased children. Beer, who worked as a private teacher of Jewish literature to the polymath Johann Christoph Wagenseil, is known as an extraordinary Kabbalist. In the present research, wide-scattered documents are gathered for the first time to write a biography of the authors. The preserved manuscripts are compared and analyzed in terms of literary criticism and religious history: Beer Sheva is presented from the point of view of structure and context in order to determine its character and classification within Jewish literature. In the seven parts of Beer Sheva, Heaven, Purgatory, and Paradise are presented in a simple, visual language. The history of Israel from the creation of the world until the Babylonian Exile takes up a great part, and leads to detailed reflections on the Messiah and Israel's salvation. It concludes with specific instructions for repentance, discussions of the resurrection of the dead, and presumptions of the future world. Beer Sheva is an impressive encyclopedia which assembles all important fields of knowledge of the Jewish culture while transporting moral ideas to the reader through entertaining stories. As one of the first Yiddish works, it makes longer Kabbalistic passages of the Zohar accessible to a non-academic audience by translating it into the cultural lingua franca of Ashkenazic Judaism. Das Werk Beer Sheva (Sieben Brunnen) wurde von dem Prager Rabbiner Beer und seiner Frau Bella Perlhefter an der Schwelle vom 17. zum 18. Jahrhundert in jiddischer Sprache verfasst und ist als Erinnerungsbuch den sieben verstorbenen Kindern des Ehepaares gewidmet. Beer, der bei dem Universalgelehrten Johann Christoph Wagenseil als Lehrer für jüdische Literatur arbeitete, galt als ein aussergewöhnlicher Mystiker. In der vorliegenden Untersuchung werden erstmalig weitverstreute Dokumente zu einer Darstellung des Lebenswegs der Autoren zusammengetragen. Auf der Grundlage eines Vergleichs der erhaltenen Handschriften wird Beer Sheva unter literaturwissenschaftlichen und religionshistorischen Aspekten analysiert. Das Werk beschreibt in bildreicher Sprache zunächst den Himmel, das Purgatorium und das Paradies. Der Darstellung der Geschichte Israels von der Erschaffung der Welt bis zum Babylonischen Exil folgen Erläuterungen über die messianische Zeit und die Auferstehung der Toten. Die Autoren schufen mit Beer Sheva eine beindruckende Enzyklopädie, in die alle wichtigen Wissensbereiche des Judentums Eingang fanden. Die Lektüre soll dem Leser Moralvorstellungen vermitteln, möchte ihn aber auch mit Hilfe einer Fülle von Erzählungen unterhalten. Innerhalb der jüdischen Kultur stellt Beer Sheva eine Besonderheit dar, da es als eines der ersten jiddischen Werke Texte der Kabbala in der Kultursprache des aschkenasischen Judentums zugänglich macht und sich nicht an ein Gelehrtenpublikum richtet.
