About this Item

8vo. 35pp. Wrappers. Work on Jewish and Christian Theology, written by renowned American Conservative Rabbi, Robert Gordis (see below). Very minor age wear. Clean and tight. Very good condition. On Rabbi Robert Gordis (Source: Obituary from the NY Times, January 7th, 1992):Rabbi Robert Gordis, 83, Dies; Defined Conservative Judaism. Dr. Robert Gordis, an author, rabbi and biblical scholar at the Jewish Theological Seminary, died on Friday at his home in Manhattan. (.) Dr. Gordis, who was ordained at the seminary in 1932, taught Bible and Jewish philosophy there from 1937 until a few years ago, when illness forced him to quit. At his death, he held the title of professor emeritus of Bible and philosophy.In 1985, Dr. Gordis became the chairman of the Commission on the Philosophy of Conservative Judaism, a group of 35 scholars and lay people who spent three years producing "Emet Ve-Emunah: Statement of Principles of Conservative Judaism." For the first time in more than 100 years, the commission tried to put into words what it means to be Conservative, a movement often defined by what it is not: not Orthodoxy to the right nor Reform to the left.(.) Dr. Gordis was also a pioneer in the area of interfaith relations. (.) For more than three decades, ending with his retirement in 1968, Dr. Gordis also served as the rabbi of Temple Beth El of Rockaway Park, Queens, where he established the first Conservative Jewish day school. He also taught at Temple University in Philadelphia, Columbia University and Union Theological Seminary. He was past president of the Synagogue Council of America, which represents all branches of Judaism, and past president of the Rabbinical Assembly of America, the association of Conservative rabbis.(.).
