"Darren Kleinberg offers a masterful integration and analysis of the theology of Yitz Greenberg. Sophisticated, holistic, and insightful, I highly recommend this work." (Aaron J. Hahn Tapper, PhD, Mae and Benjamin Swig Associate Professor of Jewish Studies, University of San Francisco. Author of Judaisms: A Twenty-First-Century Introduction to Jews and Jewish Identities)
"For the past half century Rabbi Yitz Greenberg’s role as an innovative institution builder and thinker on issues related to the Holocaust are well known. Kleinberg underscores the significance of Greenberg’s importance as a Jewish thinker by presenting a full analysis of Greenberg’s novel conception of Hybrid Judaism. Kleinberg traces the growth of Greenberg’s thinking, situating it within Greenberg’s rich and complex life experiences." (Joel Gereboff, Associate Professor, Religious Studies, Arizona State University)
"In Hybrid Judaism, Darren Kleinberg presents a comprehensive and sophisticated analysis of Rabbi Irving Greenberg’s mature thoughts on a host of subjects crucial to modern Jewish life and religious thought, and does so by situating him against the larger backdrop of American religious history and sociology. In this insightful and compelling portrait of Greenberg, Kleinberg has helped us understand how this preeminent Jewish thinker was shaped by the American setting as well as the critical role Greenberg has played in defining the nature and overall directions of modern Judaism. This book is required reading for anyone who wishes to understand Judaism in the modern world as well as American religion as it moves on into the 21st Century." (David Ellenson, Director, Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University and Chancellor-Emeritus, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion)
"American Jewry is in the midst of a sustained period of introspection and re-organization. This is playing out along any number of axes: The repercussions of the Holocaust, the significance of the State of Israel, withering denominational and institutional divisions, and the polarization of religious and political commitments. In this volume, Kleinberg makes a strong case for Yitz Greenberg as one of the leading thinkers of this period, whose writings shape not only how we understood Jewish life in the 20th century, but how we ought to understand it in the 21st.." (Professor Ari Y Kelman Jim Joseph Chair in Education and Jewish Studies Stanford University Graduate School of Education)
