The story of modern Orthodox Judaism is usually told only from the perspective of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch. Ellenson's work, a thorough examination of the life and work of one of Hirsch's contemporaries, Rabbi Esriel Hildesheimer, reveals another important contributor to the creation of a modern Jewish Orthodoxy during the late 1800s. like Hirsch, Hildesheirmer felt the need to continue certain traditions while at the same time introducing certain innovations to meet the demands of a modern society. This original study of an Orthodox rabbinic leader shows how Hildesheirmer's flexib
Pledges of Jewish allegiance : conversion, law, and policymaking in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Orthodox responsa by David Harry Ellenson( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the late 1700s, when the Jewish community ceased to be a semiautonomous political unit in Western Europe and the United States and individual Jews became integrated-culturally, socially, and politically-into broader society, questions surrounding Jewish status and identity have occupied a prominent and contentious place in Jewish legal discourse. This book examines a wide array of legal opinions written by nineteenth- and twentieth-century orthodox rabbis in Europe, the United States, and Israel. It argues that these rabbis' divergent positions-based on the same legal precedents-demonstr
Jewish meaning in a world of choice : studies in tradition and modernity by David Harry Ellenson( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Internationally recognized scholar David Ellenson shares twenty-three of his most representative essays, drawing on three decades of scholarship and demonstrating the consistency of the intellectual-religious interests that have animated him throughout his lifetime. These essays center on a description and examination of the complex push and pull between Jewish tradition and Western culture. Ellenson addresses gender equality, women's rights, conversion, issues relating to who is a Jew, the future of the rabbinate, Jewish day schools, and other emerging trends in American Jewish life. As an outspoken advocate for a strong Israel that is faithful to the democratic and Jewish values that informed its founders, he also writes about religious tolerance and pluralism in the Jewish state. The former president of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, the primary seminary of the Reform movement, Ellenson is widely respected for his vision of advancing Jewish unity and of preparing leadership for a contemporary Judaism that balances tradition with the demands of a changing world. Scholars and students of Jewish religious thought, ethics, and modern Jewish history will welcome this erudite collection by one of today's great Jewish leaders"--
After emancipation : Jewish religious responses to modernity by David Harry Ellenson( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty three essays which are grouped into five sections. In the first, Ellenson reflects among other things upon the expression of Jewish values and Jewish identity in contemporary America. In the second section, he indicates how Jewish religious leaders in nineteenth century Europe labored to demonstrate that the Jewish religion and Jewish culture were worthy of respect by the larger gentile world. In a third section, Ellenson shows how the leaders of Liberal and Orthodox branches of Judaism in Central Europe constructed novel parameters for their communities through prayer books, legal writings, sermons and journal articles. The fourth section takes a look at twentieth century Jewish legal decisions on new issues such as the status of women, fertility treatments and even the obligations of the Israeli government towards its minority populations. The last section analyzes some contemporary works of legal and liturgical creativity: the new Israeli Masorti prayer book, David Hartman's works on covenantal theology and Marcia Falk's Book of Blessings
