Response to modernity : a history of the Reform Movement in Judaism by Michael A Meyer( )

30 editions published between 1988 and 2019 in English and held by 2,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Reform Judaism is one of the major branches of the Jewish faith and a crucial phenomena in modern history, it has not, until now, received comprehensive, up-to-date historical study. Filling a critical gap in Jewish scholarship, Michael Meyer traces the development of the movement from its origins in the late 18th-century, through recent events such as the renewal of American Reform Judaism in the 1970s. With great range, extensive archival research, and colorful detail, Meyer sympathetically, yet judiciously, chronicles the spread of Reform Judaism across Germany, Austria, Hungary, Russia, France, England, and America. Demonstrating the influence of modernity, Protestant Christianity, Darwinism, and disputes over Zionism, this book places the Reform segment firmly within its religious, social, political, and intellectual context, to provide historians, religious leaders, and the general reader with an essential historical record. -- from publisher description

Jewish identity in the modern world by Michael A Meyer( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a historical survey of the three major forces which have created modern Jewish identity: enlightenment, antisemitism, and attitude towards Zion, each of which could act either as a strengthening or weakening agent. Argues that antisemitism could add to the weakening of Jewish identity caused by enlightenment, or strengthen it by undermining the latter's supposedly rational and universal basis. Discusses Jewish conversion and self-hate (Marx, Weininger) and Jewish apologetic responses to antisemitism (Isaac de Pinto), some of which were divisive, while others caused solidarity. Points out that Nazi policy forced many Jews to construct a new Jewish identity, though this revival was cut short by the Holocaust. Argues that the memory of the Holocaust today serves as a basic motive for Jewish identification
Joachim Prinz, rebellious rabbi : an autobiography : the German and early American years by Joachim Prinz( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pp. 98-179, "The Nazi Years", present an account by Rabbi Prinz (1902-1988) of his spiritual leadership in the Jewish community of Berlin under Nazi rule. His outspoken Zionism and advocacy of Jewish emigration expressed a minority opinion among German Jews. The popular sermons of Prinz, who was under Nazi surveillance, offered spiritual resistance, and his educational activities with youth and adults helped assimilated German Jews discover their Jewish identity. A farewell meeting for him held by the community was attended by Eichmann, whose report of the event apparently advanced his career. Prinz was expelled from Germany in 1937 and emigrated to the U.S. The editor occasionally corrects errors, such as dating, in Prinz's account, especially in regard to events affecting German Jews after Prinz emigrated

The German Jews : some perspectives on their history by Michael A Meyer( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lecture delivered on 25 September 1990. Reflecting on the nature of German antisemitism, argues that the German Jews were pioneers of modernization in Germany, and were therefore regarded by the Germans as destroyers. Germany became a nation in rebellion against the values of the Enlightenment. Germans defined themselves in racial terms and in connection with their country, their native soil. In the framework of this conception, Jews were the people devoted to the Enlightenment and thus hostile, racial aliens and no more than guests on the soil which was purely German. Germans never saw in Judaism a religion equal in any way to Christianity, but only tolerable
