Between the Yeshiva World and Modern Orthodoxy

The Life and Works of Rabbi Jehiel Jacob Weinberg, 1884-1966

By Marc B. Shapiro

Compellingly and authoritatively written, this biography illuminates the dilemmas that Europe's Jews have faced over the past century. The discussion of the inner struggles of one of twentieth-century Judaism's most enigmatic religious leaders - a figure who became a central ideologue of modern Orthodoxy despite his traditional training in a Lithuanian yeshiva - elucidates many institutional and intellectual phenomena of the Jewish world, and especially in pre-war Europe, that have so far received little attention.
