Vixens Disturbing Vineyards: The Embarrassment and Embracement of Scripture : A Festschrift Honoring Harry Fox LeBeit Yoreh Hardback
Edited by Tzemah Yoreh
At a time when Jewish communities have become increasingly anxious about weakening Jewish identity, one response strategy is to engage with the concept of Jewish peoplehood as a social phenomenon, in its varied contexts and processes.
This volume represents the first in-depth effort to address the concept of Jewish peoplehood since the initial attempts of early 20th century Jewish intellectuals Mordechai Kaplan and Salo Baron.
Indeed, its substance goes far beyond the range of a contemporary academic anthology, constituting, rather, a dynamic think tank on the concept of Jewish peoplehood through bringing together intellectuals from France, Israel, the UK, and the United States.
The collection offers both intellectual and practical frameworks for grappling with the policy outcomes of different understandings of the peoplehood concept.
Contributors to this volume include noted figures from diverse walks of life: academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, a rabbi, a literary figure, and communal leaders.
