Defenders of the Faith
Studies in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Orthodoxy and Reform
Series:Touro University Press
Aims and Scope
The Emancipation of European Jewry during the nineteenth century led to conflict between tradition and modernity, creating a chasm that few believed could be bridged. This illuminating work provides keen insight into the history and development of the various streams of Judaism and the issues that continue to divide them in contemporary times.
