Land, center and diaspora : Jewish constructs in late antiquity by Isaiah Gafni( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
The unique duality of Jewish existence, wherein a major Jewish centre in the Land of Israel flourished alongside a large and prosperous diaspora, was one of the outstanding features of Second Temple and post-Temple Jewish life. As in modern times, ongoing Jewish dispersion raised questions that went to the heart of Jewish self-identity, and declarations of allegiance to the ancestral homeland were frequently accompanied by seemingly contrary expressions of ''local-patriotism'' on the part of Jewish diaspora communities.

Yahadut Bavel u-mosdoteha bi-teḳufat ha-Talmud by Isaiah Gafni( Book )
13 editions published between 1975 and 1986 in Hebrew and held by 73 libraries worldwide
Beginnings of Judaism by Isaiah Gafni( visu )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
How did Judaism develop from its biblical roots to the highly developed system we know today? What has changed and what has remained constant? The answers to these questions are relevant to all faiths, as well as to anyone seeking to broaden their understanding of ancient history - a past that is inexorably linked to the present. The roots of Judaism reach back to the Hebrew Bible - also known as the Old Testament by Christians. For thousands of years, Jews have looked to these scriptures for their origins, and have located in them the tenets of their faith. The Bible provides Jews reasons for sadness and joy, wisdom, and most of all, a profound belief in what God expects of them and has promised to them. Though Jews of every generation have recognized and cherished the Bible as the ultimate source of all Jewish existence, much of what is recognized today as Judaism does not appear in the Bible. For example, worshipping in places other than the single, original Temple in Jerusalem is expressly forbidden by the Bible. Nevertheless, Jews today worship in synagogues wherever there might be a Jewish community. Similarly, the Rabbinic model, for centuries the most visible example of religious and communal leadership among Jews, is not mentioned anywhere in the Bible
