With my own eyes : the autobiography of an historian by Jacob Katz( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this lovely and moving memoir, the world's most distinguished scholar of Jewish social history recalls a life that in many ways encapsulates the arduous path of the remnant of East European Jewry through the cataclysmic events of this century. After a childhood in the crumbling Hapsburg Empire, Jacob Katz left his native Hungary to attend the famous Yeshiva of Pressburg. He later entered the University of Frankfurt, where in 1934 he received the last doctorate granted to a Jew in Nazi Germany. Heeding ominous undercurrents, Katz immigrated to Palestine-Israel in 1936. There he witnessed the birth of the new state and the growth of the prestigious Hebrew University. With My Own Eyes, guided by the hand and eye of the consummate historian, poignantly recreates the atmosphere of the period in which the author has lived

God's chosen people : Judah Halevi's Kuzari and the Shīʻī Imām doctrine by Ehud Krinis( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first ever monographic study on the theological encounter of Judaism with Shīism through an explorartion of Judah Halevi's reliance on basic themes of Shīism in the presentation of Judaism in his classical treatise, The Kuzari. The systematic formulation of the status of the People of Israel as the Chosen People of God stands at the heart of Judah Halevi's famous theological and polemical treatise - the Kuzari. The idea of the Chosen People is an ancient one and is deeply rooted in Judaism. Through a wide-ranging textual and phenomenological investigation, this book highlights the novel and systematic presentation of the Chosen People in the Kuzari and shows how Judah Halevi draws, in a creative manner, on terms, concepts, and themes borrowed from the Shī'ī doctrine of the Imām as presented in Shī'ī literature. This book presents a historical perspective for understanding the basis of Judah Halevi's attraction to Shī'ī theology, with its unique category of God's Chosen. The polemical argument over the issue of the legitimate successor to leadership in early Islam, as well as the debate around the legitimate successor-group in medieval interreligious disputes, emerges as the historical background for the seemingly surprising link between the Shī'ī Imām doctrine and the idea of the Chosen People in Judah Halevi's thought. This link on the one hand portrays Halevi as a bold, original thinker and, on the other, portrays the Shī'ī Imām doctrine as exceedingly fruitful and reaching beyond the bounds of Islam."--
Isaac Ibn Khalfun : a professional Hebrew poet of the eleventh century by Ann Brener( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyzes Ibn Khalfun's poems from a literary, social and cultural standpoint. Though he practiced many of the same genres penned by other, non-professional poets in al-Andalus (such as the panegyric), his professional status finds striking expression in almost two dozen "payment poems;" a genre which is almost unique to Ibn Khalfun in Hebrew letters, but common among the professional Arabic poets of his own day and age. This study also examines such issues as literary patronage in Jewish society, the role of the poet in the courtly milieu, and the poet's perception of his art. From all the available data, it appears that the poems found in the Cairo Geniza represent Ibn Khalfun's wandering years outside of al-Andalus rather than a portion of the poet's official diwan, as is generally assumed in the research. This suggests that the production of secular Hebrew poetry was not limited to the Iberian peninsula even at this early date, as is commonly believed, and that apart from the poems to Samuel ha-Nagid, the main body of Ibn Khalfun's works--the poems composed in al-Andalus remain lost to us
