About this Item

8vo. Xvi, 367 pages. First edition. SUBJECT (S) : Thought and thinking Judaism. CONTENTS: Introductory; Torah; Torah as law and ethics; On the organic complex. "Kadushin was born in Minsk, Russia, and immigrated with his family to Seattle, Washington in 1897. He earned his B. A. At New York University. He was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1920, where he also received his D. H. L. In 1932. Kadushin's scholarly interest was the explication of talmudic thought. Basing his observations on the latest rabbinic texts and historical investigations, Kadushin explained the unique character of the rabbinic mind. Rather than being random and disorganized, Kadushin believed that the rabbis' thought-world was made up primarily of value concepts, which were expressed in such noun forms as berakhah ("blessing") , zedakah ("charity) , and derekh erez ("proper behavior, " "ethics") . Kadushin believed that four rabbinic concepts play a dominant role in integrating the entire complex of concepts: Middat ha-Din (God's justice) , Middat Rahamim (God's love of mercy) , Torah, and Israel. In addition, rabbinic thought reflects certain "emphatic trends, " i. E. , love, the individual, universality, and the experience of God, which Kadushin calls "normal mysticism." His wife Evelyn Garfiel was a psychologist and author. She taught at the universities of Chicago and Wisconsin and wrote The Service of the Heart on the prayer book. Together they created one of the first Hebrew-speaking homes in America. " (EJ, 2007) Ex library. Good condition. (RAB-29-6) RAB4, mx3, rab6. Bookseller Inventory # 20708
