Encyclopedia of the Jewish diaspora : origins, experiences, and culture ( Book )
21 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 260 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 230 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
