This book was released on 2022-03-21 with total page 407 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Sin of Writing and the Rise of Modern Hebrew Literature contends that the processes of enlightenment, modernization, and secularization in nineteenth-century Eastern European Jewish society were marked not by a reading revolution but rather by a writing revolution, that is, by a revolutionary change in this society's attitude toward writing. Combining socio-cultural history and literary studies and drawing on a large corpus of autobiographies, memoirs, and literary works of the period, the book sets out to explain the curious absence of writing skills and Hebrew grammar from the curriculum of the traditional Jewish education system in Eastern Europe. It shows that traditional Jewish society maintained a conspicuously oral literacy culture, colored by fears of writing and suspicions toward publication. It is against this background that the young yeshiva students undergoing enlightenment started to “sin by writing,” turning writing and publication in Hebrew into the cornerstone of their constitution as autonomous, enlightened, male Jewish subjects, and setting the foundations for the rise of modern Hebrew literature.

This book was released on 2022 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Hebrew literature sprang to life in late-nineteenth-century Russia, entering the "tehiyah" (revival) period in the life of Hebrew letters. The Yeshiva and the Rise of Modern Hebrew Literature examines the role of the Yeshiva (Orthodox Jewish seminary) in why and how did this happen at that time and place? Departing from the conventional interpretation of the origins of secular Hebrew literature, Marina Zilbergerts argues that the rise of Hebrew literature was grounded in the literary practices and metaphysics of the world of Talmud study in Eastern Europe from which its first writers had emerged. The Yeshiva and the Rise of Modern Hebrew Literature focuses on the early works and personal histories of five founding Hebrew writers who began publishing between 1862 and 1900, tracing the deep connections between their new secular writings and the scholarly milieu of Talmudic culture and the yeshiva in which they had all been reared. Zilbergerts reveals that even as these writers clashed with the rabbinical elites, they were inspired by the very Talmudic texts and ascetic ideals they so despised"--

This book was released on 2018-07-28 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why Hebrew, here and now? What is its value for contemporary Americans? In What We Talk about When We Talk about Hebrew (and What It Means to Americans) scholars, writers, and translators tackle a series of urgent questions that arise from the changing status of Hebrew in the United States. To what extent is that status affected by evolving Jewish identities and shifting attitudes toward Israel and Zionism? Will Hebrew programs survive the current crisis in the humanities on university campuses? How can the vibrancy of Hebrew literature be conveyed to a larger audience? The volume features a diverse group of distinguished contributors, including�Sarah Bunin Benor, Dara Horn, Adriana Jacobs, Alan Mintz, Hannah Pressman, Adam Rovner, Ilan Stavans, Michael Weingrad, Robert Whitehill-Bashan, and Wendy Zierler. With lively personal insights, their essays give fellow Americans a glimpse into the richness of an exceptional language. Celebrating the vitality of modern Hebrew, this book addresses the challenges and joys of being a Hebraist in America in the twenty-first century. Together these essays explore ways to rekindle an interest in Hebrew studies, focusing not just on what Hebrew means�as a global phenomenon and long-lived tradition�but on what it can mean to Americans.

Summary Book Review Hebrew in America :

Download or read book Hebrew in America written by Alan L. Mintz and published by Wayne State University Press. This book was released on 1993 with total page 337 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Among the millions of Jews who immigrated to America in the early twentieth century, there were the few for whom Hebrew culture was an important ideal. Reaching a critical mass around World War I, these American Hebraists attempted to establish a vital Hebrew culture in America. They founded journals and wrote Hebrew poetry, fiction, and essays, largely about the American Jewish experience, and they succeeded in putting a Hebraist stamp upon most of the Jewish education that took place between the two world wars. Hebrew in America is the first book to fully explore the Jewish attachment to Hebrew in twentieth-century North America. Fifteen leading scholars in Judaic studies write about the legacy of American Hebraism and the claims it continues to make upon the soul of the American Jewish community. While they might commonly lament the eclipse of Hebrew in America, they speak with many different voices when it comes to the analysis of problems and the prospects for change. Several writers look backward to the impact of the Hebrew movement in America on literature and education. Others consider the implications of Hebrew's arrival on the college campus. Another emphasis of the book is the relationship between language and culture in the case of Hebrew from anthropological, educational, and linguistic perspectives. And finally, several essays assess the role of Hebrew in the development of Jewish leadership in America as regards the relationship with the classic past and with contemporary Israel.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Reflects the rise of literature in modern-day Israel and the problematic reception of literature in America and within the American Jewish community. Israeli literature provides a unique lens for viewing the inner dynamics of this small but critically important society. In addition, its leading writers such as S. Y. Agnon, Yehuda Amichai, Amos Oz, and A. B. Yehoshua, among others, are recognized internationally as major world literary figures. Despite this international recognition, the rich literary tradition of Israeli literature has failed to reverberate and find significant readership or a following in America even among the American Jewish community. Alan L. Mintz traces the reception of Israeli literature in America from the 1970s to the present. He analyzes the influences that have shaped modern Israeli literature and reflects on the cultural differences that have impeded American and American Jewish appreciation of Israeli authors. Mintz then turns his attention to specific writers, examining their reception or lack thereof in America and places them within the emerging unfolding critical dialogue between the Israeli and American literary culture.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Jewish Chinese Nexus explores through a collection of articles the nexus between two of the oldest, intact, starkly contrasting and most interesting civilizations on earth; Jews and Chinese. This volume studies how they are interacting in modernity; how they view each other and what areas of cooperation are evolving between their scholars, activists and politicians and what talents, qualities and social assets are being recognized on each side for the purpose of cooperation and exchange. Featuring contributions from some of the most important scholars and activists from China and from around the Jewish Diaspora, the essays purview China related themes including the fascination of Chinese with Jews and Judaism and its potential value in Chinese national and religious reconstruction; religious and ethnic identity; East – West interactions. It deals with the growing Jewish community in China and its impact as well as the development of Jewish studies in China and the translation of Jewish texts into Chinese and their impact. The work is a first of its kind, identifying an emerging meeting point between these two people and arguing that despite the giant contrasts in their national constructs they have nonetheless other important patterns and themes in common which pave the way for fruitful cooperation and mutual respect.
