During World War I he served as an officer in the Polish Legion. From 1913 on he wrote Polish articles and reviews on Jewish literary and historical subjects. He came to write mainly in Yiddish after 1922, the year he settled in the U. S. Where he was one of the founders of the U. S. Section of YIVO. From 1929 until his death he was librarian of the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Shatzky's range was extraordinarily wide: Spinoza, psychiatry, theater, music, folklore, literature, language, and other areas. His principal field, however, was Eastern European Jewish history, and his major work was his history of Warsaw Jewry. He was an indefatigable and often querulous reviewer of scholarly works; the quality and accuracy of his own historical scholarship has often been questioned. ”(Prager, EJ) Has tanned dust jacket and sewn in ribbon bookmark.

He also received a sound Jewish education under his relative, Zacharias Frankel. Although he studied medicine at Vienna and Padua, he devoted himself mainly to literature. The patriotic flavor of Frankl's first collection of ballads, Das Habsburgerlied, brought him a reward from Emperor Francis I. It was followed by Morgenlaendische Sagen, a volume of poems on Jewish themes, and by the epic Christoforo Colombo (1836) , for which he was made an honorary citizen of Genoa, the explorer's birthplace. In 1838 Frankl was appointed secretary and archivist of the Vienna Jewish community. The post enabled him to publish various works of Jewish interest, including a history of the Jews in Vienna, but he really made his name as editor, from 1842, of the Sonntagsblaetter, which brought him into the circle of Austria's literary elite. In later years he was to publish studies of such of his new acquaintances as the dramatist Franz Grillparzer and the poet Nikolaus Lenau, but he also encouraged new writers, notably Moritz Hartmann and Leopold Kompert. ” (EJ, 2007) Bookplate, tape mark on spine, pages a little spotty, good condition.

While a considerable amount of international research on exile and emigration of persecuted Jews from central Europe, to North and South America and other parts of the western world and soviet Union was carried out in 1970s and 80s, almost no scholarly effort had, until now, been directed towards such migration to India. The present volume seeks to fill this gap in some measure. This volume has emerged from contributions by Indian, German, & Israeli scholars from a variety of disciplines presented at an interdisciplinary symposium held at New Delhi and papers invited by the editors subsequently. Untapped sources from British, German and Indian Archives have been analyzed in order to map out the political and social parameters of this emigration movement and its cultural and intellectual interpretations. $40.00.

Includes tables, notes, & index. 23cm. The book stands at the crossroads between Jerusalem and Benares and opens a long awaited conversation between two ancient religious traditions. It represents the first serious attempt by a group of eminent scholars of Judaic and Indian studies to take seriously the cross-cultural resonance among the Judaic and Hindu traditions. The essays in the first part of the volume explore the historical connections and influences between the two traditions, including evidence of borrowed elements and the adaptation of Jewish Indian communities to Hindu culture. The essays in the second part focus primarily on resonance between particular conceptual complexes and practices in the two traditions, including comparative analyses of representations of Veda and Torah, legal formulations of dharma and halakhah and conceptions of union with the Divine in Hindu Tantra and Kabbalah.

The author attempts to analyze its reunification with world Jewry since the eighteenth century, and its strong Indian character in relation to its assimilation in Israel.

The Seven contributions in this volume analyze the historical, social and religious identity in three distinct communities of Indian Jews: the Cochin Jews, the Bene Israel and the "Baghdadi" Jews. This book is an attempt at 'self definition'. It raises basic questions like-who the Jews of India are, are they Jewish or Indian? It then proceeds to answer them by delving deep into cultural mechanisms by which India's Jews came to define themselves and how they were defined by others. In doing this it explores the conditions by which a group's identity is established and maintained, how it responds to changing conditions and how it anticipates and structures a future.

Includes illustrations, references & index. 23cm. An invaluable cultural document shaped from personal exploration, through the lives of four generations of Baghdadi Jewish women, of a social and cultural history of Baghdadi Jews in Calcutta, India. The author discovers, through the lives of her fore-mothers, how, despite being widely dispersed across Asia, they 'dwelled in travelling', creating a moving geography of Baghdadi Jewish culture. We see how they negotiate multiple identities, including that of emergent Indian nationalism, and how they perceive and shape their Jewishness and their gender in response to changing cultural and political contexts. This book also traces the trajectory of a Jewish presence in one of the most hospitable cities of the Diaspora. These rich family portraits convey a sense of the singular roles women played in building and sustaining a complex Diaspora in what Silliman calls 'Jewish Asia' over the past 150 years. Her sketches of the everyday lives of her foremothers-from the social and political relationships they forged to the food they ate and the clothes they wore-bring to life a community and a culture, even as they disclose the unexpected and subtle complexities of the colonial encounter as experienced by Jewish women. Contents include: Acknowledgements Preface : Narratives of Diaspora; 1. Introduction : Indian and Colonial Frames; 2. Farha : Crossing Borders, Maintaining Boundaries; 3. Mary : Coming Home to the Mound of Olives; 4. Flower : Meeting India at the Midnight Hour; 5. Jael : Indian Portrait, Jewish Frame; & 6. Conclusion : Dwelling in Travelling. Silliman, born into the Baghdadi Jewish community of Calcutta, was educated at Loreto House, a Catholic school in Calcutta, and later at a boarding school in Coleraine, Northern Ireland. A scholarship took her to Wellesley College. She continued her graduate studies at Harvard University and the University of Texas at Austin, and received her doctoral degree in International Education at Columbia University. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Women's Studies department at the University of Iowa.

Gandhi and the Zionists (including C.F. Andrews and the Jews). 2. The Jews of India. 3. Art. 4. From the archives. Indo-Judaic Studies has been gathering momentum ever since India and Israel established full diplomatic relations some ten years ago. This book is an important historical contribution to the subject as it contains hitherto unpublished material gleaned mainly from public and private archives in India and Israel. The author presents Mahatma Gandhi and C.F. Andrews in a new light. He traces the "lost" periods of the Bene Israel sojourn in India: their early settlement; the medieval and Moghul periods; and their heyday under the Marathas. The section on art deals with a fabulous collection that contains Indian miniatures and manuscripts taken by Nadir Shah when he took the Koh-i-noor and the Peacock throne. The diary kept by the Zionist emissary to India in 1936, Dr. Olsvanger, is published in full in English translation together with his correspondence with Pandit Nehru. The reader is introduced to the papers of Hermann Kallenbach, Gandhi's soul friend, and gets a peep into Indian and Israeli archives with one document going back to 1826." ISBN:8172111312 $40.00

Actively aware of the anti-Semitism prevalent in the Central and Eastern European universities, he wrote his earliest book, The Jew and His Neighbour (1930, 1938) . He then embarked on what was planned as a comprehensive history of anti-Semitism, the chief responsibility for which he saw in the policy of the Christian Church (The Conflict of the Church and the Synagogue, 1934; The Jew in the Medieval Community, 1938) . He wrote a long series of other works on anti-Semitism, the origins of Christianity, the history of Palestine, etc, in all of which he demonstrated a strong sympathy with the Jewish people and appreciation of Judaism as a religious system. Parkes collaborated with many Jewish organizations and was president of the Jewish Historical Society of England (1949-51) . His important private library on Jewish history and Jewish-Gentile relations, which he collected at his home in Barley (near Cambridge) and was incorporated in 1956 as a center for the study of relations between the Jewish and non-Jewish worlds, was given by Parkes to the University of Southampton, where the University established a research fellowship for the study of the relations of Jewish and non-Jewish communities.
