Are we one? : Jewish identity in the United States and Israel by Jerold S Auerbach( )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Are We One? Jerold S. Auerbach presents a surprising new interpretation of this contemporary Jewish dilemma. His conclusion that the modern Jewish impulse to embrace Western values exacts a terrible price stems from a brilliant reassessment of Zionism and a challenging analysis of the sources of the identification of American Jews with Israel." "Drawing upon original historical analysis and extensive personal experience in Israel, Auerbach invites readers to consider the debilitating consequences of an adulterated Jewish identity in Israel and in the United States for the very future of Judaism."--Jacket
Explorers in Eden : Pueblo Indians and the promised land by Jerold S Auerbach( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning in the late nineteenth century, the Pueblos of the Southwest frequently inspired Anglo-American visitors to express their sense of wonder and enchantment in biblical references. Frank Hamilton Cushing's first account of Zuni pueblo described a setting that looked like "The Pools of Palestine." Drawn to the Southwest, Mabel Dodge imagined "a garden of Eden, inhabited by an unfallen tribe of men and women." There she was attracted to Tony Luhan, a Taos Indian who looked "like a Biblical figure.""

Hebron Jews : memory and conflict in the land of Israel by Jerold S Auerbach( )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first comprehensive history in English of the Jews of Hebron, Jerold S. Auerbach explores one of the oldest and most vilified Jewish communities in the world. Spanning three thousand years, from the biblical narrative of Abraham's purchase of a burial cave for Sarah to the violent present, it offers a controversial analysis of a community located at the crossroads of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle over national boundaries and the internal Israeli struggle over the meaning of Jewish statehood. Hebron Jews sharply challenges conventional Zionist historiography and current media understa

High-level language support for programming reliable distributed systems by Jerold S Auerbach( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This paper presents a strategy for simplifying the programming of heterogeneous distributed systems. Our approach is based on integrating a distributed programming model into high level languages, and hiding low-level details such as multitasking, interprocess and network communications, and fault-tolerance in the implementation of the language constructs. Programs in these languages are shorter, simpler to write and test, and are portable across different environments. We propose a platform for developing reliable distributed systems based on this approach

Jacob's voices : reflections of a wandering American Jew by Jerold S Auerbach( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three-generation narrative, Jacob's Voices is the autobiography of an American Jew who discovered in Israel a way to unravel the legacy of Jewish ambivalence transmitted by his immigrant grandfather and American father. Auerbach begins with recollections of a New York Jewish boyhood in the 1940s and 1950s. The themes are acculturation and social mobility, accompanied by sublimation of Jewishness in personal success and liberal politics. But his is a narrative of self-discovery that unfolded both in his American home and in the Jewish homeland. An unexpected visit to Israel caused a series of encounters with Jewish memory, both personal and historical. He tells of his own about-face in terms of Jewish identity. Finding pockets of Jewish memory in Israel, Auerbach heard the voice of his grandfather Jacob for the first time - and thus discovered his own. However, the Israel he explored makes most American Jews and many Israelis intensely uncomfortable because it contradicts their liberal assumptions. Auerbach sets much of Jacob's Voices in Israel, where he sets his quest for Jewish identity within the larger struggle of the Jewish state to define itself. Ironically, Auerbach left liberalism for Judaism even as Israel redefined Zionism as liberalism. In the end, after seriously considering moving to Israel, he returned to the United States. He analyzes the reasons - historically rooted in Jewish emancipation - why he believes Israel has become merely a state of the Jews, evolving into an appendage of the United States rather than a Jewish state. Ultimately, then, Jacob's Voices asks what it means to live as an American Jew in the United States and Israel at the end of the twentieth century
