Isaac Breuer (1883–1946): Philosophy of Judaism in Face of the Crisis of Modernity

Philosophie des Judentums angesichts der Krise der Moderne

The focus of this study, the religious scholar Isaac Breuer (1883–1946), is one of the most important figures in 20th century German-Jewish neo-orthodoxy. Like many of his contemporaries, Breuer interpreted the early 20th century world as a time of great crisis. The heart of his specifically orthodox Jewish philosophy of crisis was his promotion of halachic observance of the Torah.
