by Moshe Rosman, How Jewish Is Jewish History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download How Jewish Is Jewish History book, With great vigour and from the vantage point of long experience of writing and teaching Jewish history, Moshe Rosman treats the key questions that postmodernism raises for the writing of Jewish history.What is the relationship between Jewish culture and history and those of the non-Jews among whom Jews live? Can we-in the light of postmodernist thought-speak of a continuous, coherent Jewish People, with a distinct culture and history? What in fact is Jewish cultural history, and how can it be written? How does gender transform the Jewish historical narrative? How does Jewish history fit into the multicultural paradigm? Has Jewish history entered a postmodern phase? How can Jewish history utilize the methodologies of other disciplines to accomplish its task? All these are questions that Jewish historians need to think about if their work is to be taken seriously by mainstream historians and intellectuals, or indeed by educated Jews interested in understanding their own cultural and historical past. While engaging with the questions raised by postmodernists, the author adopts a critical stance towards their work. His basic claim is that it is possible to incorporate, judiciously, postmodern innovations into historical scholarship that is still based on documentary research and critical analysis. The resulting endeavor might be termed 'a reformed positivism'. Rosman presents a concentrated, coherent, cogent argument as to what considerations must be brought to bear on the writing of Jewish history today. By highlighting in one book the issues raised by postmodernism, How Jewish is Jewish History? provides those in the field with a foundation from which to discuss how it should be practiced in light of this generation's challenges. It is a valuable resource for students of Jewish history and historiography and a handy tool for scholars who must confront the issues aired here in their own more narrowly focused scholarly works.

by Julia Phillips Berger, Teaching Jewish History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Teaching Jewish History book, Inform your students' lives with the richness of thousands of years of Jewish history, culture, and tradition. Teaching Jewish History tackles separately each of the key Jewish historical periods-Biblical, Rabbinic, Medieval, Early Modern, Enlightenment, and Modern, as well as the North American Jewish experience. The authors shift focus away from rote memorization of dates, names, and places, and instead examine each period through the lens of core historical concepts-the Diaspora, Covenant, acculturation, assimilation, and building community. History comes to life, helping students whether elementary, middle or high school, or adult develop a stronger Jewish identity. Teaching Jewish History gives teachers the tools to: ? Understand and explain the meaning of key concepts, terms, names, places, and events in each period of history. ? Identify and examine primary source documents and objects such as artifacts, diaries, sacred texts, photographs, and artwork. ? Conduct meaningful discussions of how the core concepts of Jewish history recur in and are relevant to each historical period. ? Develop a variety of activities including field trips, mock trials, oral histories, and role-playing activities. ? Place historical events on a timeline. ? Use additional historical and educational resources such as books, articles, videos, and Internet sites. Teaching Jewish History is an invaluable resource for the novice and the expert teacher of religious and day school children and for educators working with adults in synagogues, community centers, and family education programs.

by Michael Laitman, The Jewish Choice Unity Or Anti Semitism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Jewish Choice Unity Or Anti Semitism book, The Jewish Choice: Unity or Anti-Semitism is like no other book you have ever read about Jews, about history, or about anti-Semitism. As its title suggests, it draws a direct link between Jewish unity and a rise in anti-Semitism, including the current wave. Assuming such a correlation is so extraordinary, you could easily brush it off as a provocation were it not documented in hundreds of books, essays, and letters throughout history. Beginning in ancient Babylon and ending in America, Babylon’s modern counterpart, the author masterfully draws parallels and connects the dots of history like none have done before. By the end of the book, you will know the reason for the oldest hatred, how it can be dissolved, and how Jews and non-Jews alike will benefit as a result.
