Nine Talmudic Readings

Nine rich and masterful readings of the Talmud by the French Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas translate Jewish thought into the language of modern times. Between 1963 and 1975, Levinas delivered these commentaries at the annual Talmudic colloquia of a group of French Jewish intellectuals in Paris. In this collection, Levinas applies a hermeneutic that simultaneously allows the classic Jewish texts to shed light on contemporary problems and lets modern problems illuminate the texts. Besides being quintessential illustrations of the art of reading, the essays express the deeply ethical vision of the human condition that makes Levinas one of the most important thinkers of our time.

The High Holy Days -- Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur -- are for many Jews the highlight of the Jewish year. The liturgy for the Days of Awe are the longest and most complex of the year, leaving a large number of attendees without a complete understanding of the occasion's significance. Entering The High Holy Days provides historical background and interpretation of the ideas, practices, and liturgy and lends them contemporary relevance to today's Jews. Reuven Hammer received his ordination and doctorate in theology from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. He is the former president of the Rabbinical Assembly and head of the Rabbinical Court of the Masorti Movement.

A major purpose of the book is to explore the processes of development in the later years and their impact on people's lives. This search is not without pain or disappointment; however, involvement with older persons will bring students into contact with people who often long for human contact, who can be wise or sad or funny or foolish, but who give us a sense of our past and a view of the present that otherwise would be lost to us. There is a special delight in bridging over age differences with warmth and understanding. In addition to our personal enrichment, a balanced view of aging, emphasizing both the continuing strengths and abilities as well as the difficulties that may confront the old, is of value to the student who may enter a profession that directly serves older persons, or who may work as a volunteer, or for relating to one's parents when they are old. Ultimately, too, we should gain some perspective on our own aging. In this book there has been an attempt to present aging from a variety of perspectives in articles that are free from excessive professional jargon. They have been chosen as reflective of the major issues in the field of gerontology. Basic concepts of the aging process are presented in the initial two sections.
