About this Item

Publishers cloth. 8vo. 174 pages. 25 cm. First edition. "This book attempts to determine the impact of the Mussar Movement, with emphasis on Rabbi Israel Salanter and his key disciples on the moral, spiritual, educational, social, and political life of the Jews in light of Jewish and Eastern European history of the time. Dr. Eckman has presented well the Mussar Movement which offers a legacy of great personalities, significant contributions, noble deeds, and great works of rabbinic and ethical literature. It is a work of paramount importance and relevant for our times. " (Publishers Description) . The Musar Movement was an "Educational movement and ethical program designed to promote and develop the teachings and practices introduced by Yisra el Lipkin (Salanter; 1810 1883) . Salanter s broad notions for reinvigorating Jewish society gave way at the hands of his disciples to programs of educational reform within the circumscribed though culturally significant ambit of Lithuanian yeshivas, while his ideas gradually underwent dramatic reinterpretation and revision. " (YIVO Encyclopedia) . Subjects: Musar movement - History. Mouvement musar - Histoire. Mussar-Bewegung. Light pen marks on first endpages, jacket slightly worn at edges, minor pen marks on a few pages, otherwise clean and fresh. Good - condition. (EE-4-58A) Ee2, rab9. (ja).
