10 ANGEL, MARC D. But Who Am I, And Who Are My People?: A Rabbi's Reflections On The Rabbinate And The Jewish Community.
Ktav Publishing House, Hoboken: 2001. 0881256943 / 9780881256949 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
The world at large knows almost nothing about the life and work of a rabbi: the diverse responsibilities and obligations, the many stresses and pressures, the conflicting demands for time, energy and sympathetic understanding, the insistent public causes and private needs that demand intervention and compete for attention. Indeed, much of what rabbis do is unknown even to members of their own congregations. This book is a compelling and informative attempt to address such matters.

11 ANGEL, MARC. The Search Committee: A Novel.
Urim Fiction, Jerusalem/New York / Lambda, Brooklyn: 2008. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
When the leader of a venerable Torah academy passes away, a search committee begins to investigate two candidates, both serious serious and committed Torah scholars. However, the resemblance ends there. One, the previous leader's son, is a staunch traditionalist determined to keep to the old ways, while the other is a university graduate with a modern, open-minded perspective. The candidates hold opposing views about the role of the yeshiva, the ideals of Torah Judaism, the role of women in the community, and the future of Orthodoxy and the Jewish people. As they, their wives, colleagues, students, and donors address the Committee, a dramatic story emerges about the ways in which a traditional community may embrace or reject the modern world. "Marc Angel's The Search Committee should be required reading of every divinity student as well as anyone interested in the future of our pluralistic culture." - Dr. Ezra Cappell, Assistant Professor, University of Texas and author of American Talmud: The Cultural Work of Jewish American Fiction

15 BATNITZKY, LEORA. How Judaism Became A Religion: An Introduction To Modern Jewish Thought.
Princeton University Press, Princeton: 2013. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Is Judaism a religion, a culture, a nationality - or a mixture of all of these? In How Judaism Became a Religion, Leora Batnitzky boldly argues that this question more than any other has driven modern Jewish thought since the eighteenth century. This wide-ranging and lucid introduction tells the story of how Judaism came to be defined as a religion in the modern period--and why Jewish thinkers have fought as well as championed this idea. Ever since the Enlightenment, Jewish thinkers have debated whether and how Judaism--largely a religion of practice and public adherence to law--can fit into a modern, Protestant conception of religion as an individual and private matter of belief or faith. Batnitzky makes the novel argument that it is this clash between the modern category of religion and Judaism that is responsible for much of the creative tension in modern Jewish thought. Tracing how the idea of Jewish religion has been defended and resisted from the eighteenth century to today, the book discusses many of the major Jewish thinkers of the past three centuries, including Moses Mendelssohn, Abraham Geiger, Hermann Cohen, Martin Buber, Zvi Yehuda Kook, Theodor Herzl, and Mordecai Kaplan. At the same time, it tells the story of modern orthodoxy, the German-Jewish renaissance, Jewish religion after the Holocaust, the emergence of the Jewish individual, the birth of Jewish nationalism, and Jewish religion in America. More than an introduction, How Judaism Became a Religion presents a compelling new perspective on the history of modern Jewish thought. Leora Batnitzky is professor and chair in the Department of Religion at Princeton University, where she also directs the Tikvah Project on Jewish Thought. She is the author of Leo Strauss and Emmanuel Levinas: Philosophy and the Politics of Revelation and Idolatry and Representation: The Philosophy of Franz Rosenzweig Reconsidered (Princeton). "Batnitzky devotes her book to differentiating the array of responses to the modern notion of Judaism as a sheer religion. She presents meticulously the disparate positions of figures as varied as Moses Mendelssohn, Abraham Geigel, Hermann Cohen, Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber, Abraham Kook and his son, Theodor Herzl, Ahad Ha'am, Emil Fackenheim and Mordecai Kaplan. She also presents the altogether 'premodern' views of Eastern European Jews such as the Hasidim. She shows that even resolute Reform Jews such as Geiger failed to work out a clean separation between politics and religion. With the Holocaust and with the founding of Israel, any divide seemed refuted by history." - Robert A. Segal, Times Higher Education Supplement "As Batnitzky points out, Judaism doesn't fit any modern mold especially well. Her book adds both shrewdness and humility to the search for modern Jewish identity and the claims often made about the purity of these identities." - Edward Ruehle, Jewish Voice and Herald "Superb and thought-provoking."--Adam Kirsch, Tablet Magazine "The book uses the combined rubric of religion, nation, and culture as the key to understanding the past two centuries of Jewish thought. This sweeping construct illuminates scholars and their debates, revealing ironies that have heretofore gone largely unnoticed." - Lawrence Grossman, Jewish Ideas Daily
