   Biblical Hebrew in Its Northwest Semitic Setting: Typological and Historical Perspectives
by Steven E. Fassberg /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

In 1961 William L. Moran published “The Hebrew Language in Its Northwest Semitic Background” (in The Bible and the Ancient Near East: Essays in Honor of William Foxwell Albright) in which he presented a state-of-the-art description of the linguistic milieu out of which Biblical Hebrew developed. In the light of the significant advances in the study of Biblical Hebrew and Northwest Semitic in the past four decades, the Institute for Advanced Studies of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem convened an international research group during the 2001-2002 academic year on the topic “Biblical Hebrew in Its Northwest Semitic Setting: Typological and Historical Perspectives.” The present volume presents the fruits of the year long collaboration. The articles are based on the lectures that were given during the year. A wide array of subjects are discussed, all of which have implications for the study of Biblical Hebrew and Northwest Semitic.

eBook EARLY PROPHECY IN ISRAEL

   EARLY PROPHECY IN ISRAEL
by Benjamin Uffenheimer /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

This book, an expanded translation of the Hebrew original, is a penetrating study of early Hebrew prophecy as portrayed in the Old Testament. Professor Uffenheimer discusses the historical, theological and social aspects of this unique phenomenon, from its beginnings to the emergence of classical prophecy in the 8th century BCE – a period stretching from the prophetic leadership of Moses and the charismatic savior-judges, through the court prophets of the United Monarchy, to the militant prophets of the Northern Kingdom, culminating in the internal crisis under Jehu that led to the evolution of classical prophecy. The author draws, on the one hand, upon extra-biblical, Near Eastern material (the Mari documents, Hittie vassal treaties, etc.); on the other, he relies upon inner literary analysis of the biblical sources themselves. Among other things, he contests some of the innovative theories that have been proposed to account biblical prophecy.

eBook France and the Middle East: Past, Present, Future

   France and the Middle East: Past, Present, Future
by Michel Abitbol /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

Rich and multiform, French influence in the Levant and Palestine was predominant until the end of the First World War. While conferring a particular importance upon its religious establishments, France has also always invested in the development of her economic, scientific, and technological relations with the countries in the region. Marking the beginning of her political disengagement from the Holy Land, the British Mandate period saw, notably, the gradual disappearance of the French language from the cultural life of Palestine. France's return in force to the region would have to await the creation of the State of Israel and decolonization, first as a close friend of Israel, then, after the Six-Day War, as Europe's most active political power in the Middle East.

by Margalit Bejarano /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

AMILAT se enorgullece en presentar el sexto volumen de su serie Judai¬ica Latinoamericana, que incluye los trabajos presentados en la Sección de Judaísmo Latinoamericano del XIV Congreso Mundial de Estudios Judaicos, realizado en Jerusalem en 2005, por investigadores establecidos en las Américas, Europa e Israel. Este volumen, multidisciplinario y pluritemático, refleja la creciente relevancia y visibilidad de las investigaciones sobre judaísmo latinoameric¬cano, así como su lenta pero constante integración con los estudios sobre otras áreas históricas, geográficas, sociales y culturales del judaísmo mund¬dial. Efectivamente, cada vez son más los investigadores que perciben la correlación entre las experiencias judías en América Latina y en otras reg¬giones del globo. Al mismo tiempo, se presta creciente atención a lo que diferencia y asemeja a las diversas realidades judías dentro de la misma Am

   Judaism of the Second Temple Period - Vol 1: Qumran and Apocalypticism
by דוד פלוסר /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

In Judaism of the Second Temple Period, Flusser examines the influence of apocalypticism on various Jewish sects. He states that the teachings of Jesus, while reflecting first and foremost the views of the sages, are also influenced by Jewish apocalypticism. Examining the Essenes, their effect on Hebrew language, the split of sects, and much more, Flusser's collected essays offer an important source of study for any Dead Sea Scrolls scholar.

eBook LEVINAS'S JEWISH THOUGHT: Between Jerusalem and Athens

   LEVINAS'S JEWISH THOUGHT: Between Jerusalem and Athens
by Ephraim Meir /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

This book situates Levinas in the pantheon of modern Jewish thinkers, discussing a number of themes that frequently occur in Jewish thought. The author presents Levinas's oeuvre, which comprises two parts - his Jewish, “confessional” writings and his philosophical, “professional” writings - as a unity. The question of the exact relationship between these two types of writings is a lively discussion in present day scholarship. How does Levinas perceive the relationship between revelation and philosophy, the biblical address and the logos, the Saying and the said, faith and reason? There is a long oppositional tradition which contrasts Athens with Jerusalem, yet Levinas does not take part in such an antithetical tradition. Without reconciling or harmonizing, he belongs to the philosophical tradition as well as to the Jewish tradition. This double allegiance explains the presence of philosophical terms and themes in his Jewish thought and the presence of Jewish words and ideas in his

eBook On Chariots with Horses of Fire and Iron

   On Chariots with Horses of Fire and Iron
by Anthony S. Travis /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

This book deals with the arrival of modernity in the Holy Land in the form of the 86 km Jaffa-Jerusalem Railway. Befitting the completion of such a substantial undertaking, the inauguration, in September 1892, was a grand affair, attended by representatives of the Ottoman Empire, consuls, religious leaders, and foreign delegations. The tracks approached Jerusalem from the southwest through the Judean Mountains, taking advantage of the deep, winding river bed of the Soreq Valley. This afforded the least steep route, though even then the grades were a challenge for the locomotives. Since the tracks were of narrow meter-gauge they could easily follow the natural contours of the land on the ascent to Jerusalem, the highest point, at about 700 meters above sea level

eBook The Battle For The Land

   The Battle For The Land
by Yossi Katz /The Hebrew University Magnes Press

In 1901, the Zionist Organization founded the Jewish National Fund to purchase lands in the Land of Israel and transfer them to the ownership of the Jewish people. The book before us examines and summarizes the JNF's land purchasing policies and endeavors, from the establishment of the Fund to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. A major part of this essay centers on the period from 1936 to 1948, which were the most important years of the JNF's activities and during which it became almost the sole Jewish entity promoting this aspect of the building of the land of Israel. During these years, the JNF purchased about 600,000 dunams, which constitute more than 60% of its acquisitions from its establishment to the establishment of the State. The pivotal nature of the JNF during those years stems first and foremost from the recognition of its settlement endeavors by the top institutions of the Zionist Organization, in promoting the political interests of the Zionist move
