Summary

"A study of Breuer opens the door to many of the most important issues in modern Jewish religious and political thinking. This book elucidates those issues with vigor." -- Robert Goldenberg

This is the first full-length, systematic study in English of Isaac Breuer, a founder of Agudat Israel, whose intellectual achievements reflected the world of Franz Rosenzweig and Martin Buber in an Orthodox mirror. It sheds light on an often neglected aspect of German Jewry's last phase and reclaims Breuer as a paradigmatic figure in the Jewish encounter with modernity.

"I found it to be a sophisticated and intelligent study of a neglected but immensely interesting figure in modern Jewish thought. Moreover, Mr. Mittleman's scholarship is sound. Thank you for the opportunity to read this most stimulating essay." -- Paul Mendes-Flohr

Alan L. Mittleman is Assistant Professor of Religion and Muhlenberg Scholar in Jewish Studies at Muhlenberg College, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
