About this title
Standing at the vortex of religious, educational, and cultural cross-currents, the Jewish Theological Seminary has actively particiated in the epochal events and movements of the twentieth century. It has intersected with virtually all the major religious and social currents that have shaped Jewish life throughout the world, and especially in the American Jewish community. Situated in the most cosmopolitan of cities, the Seminary has never been far removed from the swirling ideas and movements that have swept through America's cultural capital. The examination of the Seminary within the larger context of Jewish life during the twentieth century is central to the conception of this two-volume history. Contributions to these volumes are deliberately organized to move outward from internal academic matters "to the world at large"; from the experiences of students and faculty to the movements they led and shaped; from the "little culture" of JTS to the broader culture of American Jews; from the Seminary as a denominational institution to its interaction with the larger world of higher education; from the close study of texts in the classroom to the broadcasting of Jewish knowledge on radio and television; from internal conversations over Jewish ideology and religious practice to pioneering dialogues with leaders of other faith communities. Comprising freshly commissioned studies written by scholars from institutions of higher learning throughout the United States, Canada, and Israel, and richly illustrated, Tradition Renewed offers a dispassionate and analytical history of the Jewish Theological Seminary from its founding in 1886 to the conclusion of teh administration of Gerson D. Cohen, a century later.
