9780786425242: Jewish Belief And Practice in Nineteenth Century America: Seminal Essays by Outstanding Pulpit

In nineteenth century American Jewry, the outstanding philosophers and theologians were all pulpit rabbis, serving congregations and using their pulpits, rather than academic positions, to disseminate their thinking. Immigrants to the United States, they were sensitive to the meaning of American liberty and to the currents of American thought. Men like Max Lilienthal and Liebman Adler were honored as scholars and spokesmen for their communities, and their influence spread throughout American Jewish thought and society. This anthology contains 18 essays written by 11 Jewish rabbis from 1856 to 1900. These thinkers dealt with issues such as providence, revelation, halakhah (Jewish Law), evolution, Biblical criticism, and science. The rabbis were popularizers, reformers, and traditionalists, and this collection bears those varied perspectives. An introduction offers historical and biographical information on each of the rabbis and analysis of the selection. The essays are presented in their original forms, including the exact punctuations and spellings, but with footnotes added by the editor.
