Description

For many Jews and non-Jews, the Torah, the Talmud and other rabbinic writings have long been interpreted as saying that the Jews alone are God's chosen people. According to Sears, such readings have led to a struggle among Jews between assimilation-losing their particular Jewish identity-and withdrawal-preserving their particular Jewish identity and surviving as a people. In order to demonstrate the depth from which Judaism speaks in a universalistic voice, Sears collects a wide range of sources from a number of periods in Jewish history. Sears's extensive sourcebook is a rich collection of primary writings on the role of compassion in the Jewish tradition.show more
