Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This selection of essays by the great scholar Gershom Scholem presents Scholem the man as well as Scholem the Kabbalah scholar. Many of the issues addressed in this book — his relationship to and feelings about contemporary Israel, Jewish identity, personal reflections on Jewish mysticism and spirituality, Messianism — are still important and vital today.

Synopsis:

In this collection of essays, we encounter a scholar passionately concerned with the cultural and spiritual renaissance of the Jewish people in its own land, a scholar whose concerns encompass issues of the cultural life, language, the meaning of scholarship, and the religious quest.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 225-233) and index.
