Justice in the city by Aryeh Cohen( )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Justice in the City argues, based on the Rabbinic textual tradition, especially the Babylonian Talmud, and utilizing French Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas' framework of interpersonal ethics, that a just city should be a community of obligation. That is, in a community thus conceived, the privilege of citizenship is the assumption of the obligations of the city towards Others who are not always in view--workers, the poor, the homeless. These Others form a constitutive part of the city. The second part of the book is a close analysis of homelessness, labor and restorative justice from within the theory that was developed. --From publisher's description

Beginning / Toward a Hermeneutic of Jewish Texts ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation Representing the full spectrum of subfields within Jewish Studies, the contributing scholars to this volume use "beginnings" as a hermeneutic stance to analyze texts in their area. While each essay is a significant contribution to its own subfield - Bible, Talmud, Kabbalah, Modern Jewish Thought, Feminist and Cultural Studies - the essays taken as a whole present new possibilities for exploring the space that is Jewish Studies and beginning an inquiry into what might constitute a definable hermeneutics of Jewish texts
