Format: Hardcover
In Creating A Judaism Without Religion: A Postmodern Jewish Possibility, Daniel Breslauer explores the contemporary phenomena of a Jewish identity that is divorced from traditional concepts of "religion" as the sole source of Jewishness. Challenging, articulate, and occasionally iconoclastic chapters include Creative Betrayal: Hasidism, Israeli Writers, and Martin Buber; Jewish Studies, Disciples of the Besht, and Responses to the Holocaust; A Possibility for Deconstruction of Revelation: The case of Eugene B. Borowitz; Visions of the Messiah in Poetry, Theology, and Mysticism; Jewish Culture as Experiments in Variety: Some Reflections on Hayyim Nahman Bialik and Cultural Zionism; Anthropological Betrayal: Bialik and the Jewish Book; Bialik, Agnon, and Ben Yehuda: Hebrew and the Individual's Spiritual Quest; Negotiation as Theology: Reflections on Stories by I.L. Peretz, S.Y. Agnon, and Martin Buber; Considerations of Eisik Ben Yekel of Crakow, Some Stories of I.L. Peretz, and the Meaning of Circumcision; and The Limits of Covenant Theology, Instructive Poems by Ilan Sheinfeld, and the Subversive in Peretz. A welcome and recommended addition to Judaic Studies reading lists and academic reference collections, Creating A Judaism Without Religion is enhanced with an extensive bibliography and an exhaustive index.
