About this Item

(FT) 8vo. 184 pages. In Hebrew. Volume one only. Second edition. SUBJECT(S) : Commandments, six hundred and thirteen. OCLC lists 10 copies of this edition worldwide. SERIES: `Ovadyah, sifre yesod be-hinukh ha-no`ar ha-dat. "Born in Frankfurt, Heinemann [1876-1957] studied at German universities, and at the Berlin Rabbinical Seminary. In the years 191938, he lectured in Jewish philosophy and literature at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Breslau, where he reached the rank of professor. In 1939, he settled in Jerusalem, where he continued to pursue his studies of Jewish philosophy. He was awarded the Israel Prize for Jewish studies in 1955. Heinemann's [1876-1957] clear and well-founded investigations were the result of his facing the problems of contemporary Judaism and standing up to the influences of European culture as well as German nationalistic hatred. He expounded his ideas in lectures, in German, as well as in series of essays, in which he discusses topical problems like militarism or pacifism, by analyzing historical attitudes which stem from either Greek or Germanic thought, or from Christianity, and comparing them with the Jewish viewpoint as reflected in Scripture. The Jewish attitude, he concluded, is the correct one, and the Jew should refer back to his own sources and find his place in world culture, not by refuting his faith, but rather by adhering to it.
