Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In his new book, Eisen (religious studies, Stanford, and author of Chosen People in America, Indiana Univ., 1995), examines modern Jewish ritual as a window into Jewish feeling. He offers some striking ideas, pointing out that modernity has affected even those who consider themselves of orthodox belief. He seeks to show how Jews of all spectra are continually reinventing traditions. After all, nostalgia and the search for usable history partly motivate religious practice, and in our times the Passover haggadah has been rewritten by various Jewish movements to emphasize different aspects of freedom. Eisen's study is an original one, and it will be most appreciated by scholars and academic readers. Recommended for larger libraries.?Paul M. Kaplan, Lake Villa Dist. Lib., Round Lake Beach, IL
