Resurgence of Jewish Life in Germany

Sampul Depan
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2004 - 194 halaman

As early as the first century of the common era, Jews followed the Romans to live on German territory. For two thousand years Jews and the local population co-existed. This relationship has been turbulent at times but has occasionally been a model of multicultural synergism. Together the two groups have produced a unique and rich culture. Germany's Jewish Community, with thriving congregations, schools, publications, and museums, has been the world's fastest growing group. This work focuses on the present while addressing the underlying question of the future for Jews in Germany: How temperate is the German social climate and how fertile is its soil for Jews?

This work focuses on the present while addressing the underlying question of the future for Jews in Germany: How temperate is the German social climate and how fertile is its soil for Jews? Seventy people were interviewed for this book to establish what kind of relationships are being established across the Jewish and non-Jewish border. The interviewees represent three generations and all walks of life. This text depicts their legacies, fears, and hopes in their own words. Existing German societal conditions are evaluated for possible future creativity and synergy.

Halaman viii - ... who saves the defenceless victims of powerful swindlers. There is a chair for him at every circumcision, and a cup of wine on every Passover table. He is stationed at the cross-roads of paradise to welcome every worthy person; he weaves garlands for God from the prayers of the truly pious. He will be the precursor of the Messiah, ushering in the new world in which the sufferings of Israel and of all peoples will be no more.
