Encyclopedia of the Jewish diaspora : origins, experiences, and culture ( Book )
22 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 264 libraries worldwide
From the Roman occupation of Judea circa 135 A.D. to the founding of Israel, Jewish people were without a sovereign homeland. But far from eradicating Judaism, as the Emperor Hadrian desired, the Judean conquest expanded its reach, as Jewish refugees, pilgrims, and slaves scattered throughout the world, accelerating a Diaspora that had begun six to eight centuries earlier. This work is a resource on the evolution and dynamics of the Jewish Diaspora as it played out around the world--from its beginnings to the present. --from publisher description
The Messiah of Brooklyn : understanding Lubavitch Hasidism past and present by M. Avrum Ehrlich( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
"The Messiah of Brooklyn: Understanding Lubavitch Hasidism Past and Present is the story of the expansion of the Habad - Lubavitch school of hasidic Judaism under the leadership of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Schneerson was the last in a dynasty of hasidic leaders who came to New York after the Holocaust. From a small band of refugees, he built a large, powerful international community of rabbis, emissaries and fervent disciples who committed their lives to his teachings and armed with his instructions lay the foundations of Habad's messianic agenda. With a strong focus on outreach amongst Jews as a necessary condition for the "redemption", it succeeded in becoming the most influential religious group in the last fifty years of modern Judaism." "Many Lubavitch Hasidim viewed Rabbi Schneerson as the messiah and because of this, his death brought about a crisis of faith and leadership within the movement. The change in the movement, the factions and splinter groups developing variant theologies to explain the death of their messiah are subjects explored by Ehrlich together with the socio-religious undercurrents composing the movement's identity."--Jacket
Jews and Judaism in modern China by M. Avrum Ehrlich( Book )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 158 libraries worldwide
Jews and Judaism in Modern China explores and compares the dynamics at work in two of the oldest, intact and starkly contrasting civilizations on earth; Jewish and Chinese. The book studies how they interact in modernity and how each civilization views the other, and analyses areas of cooperation between scholars, activists and politicians. Through evaluation of the respective talents, qualities and social assets that are fused and borrowed in the civilizational exchange, we gain an insight into the social processes underpinning two contrasting and long surviving civilizations. Identifying and analysing some of the emerging current issues, this book suggests Jewish-Chinese relations may become a growing discipline of import to the study of religion and comparative identity, and looks at how the significant contrasts in Jewish and Chinese national constructs may serve them well in the quest for a meaningful discourse. Chapters explore identity, integrity of the family unit; minority status; religious freedom; ethics and morality; tradition versus modernity; the environment, and other areas which are undergoing profound transformation. Identifying the intellectual and practical nexus and bifurcation between the two cultures, worldviews and identities, this work is indispensable for students of Chinese studies, sociology, religion and the Jewish diaspora, and provides useful reading for Western tourists to China
