Pacifism and the Jews
Studies of 20th-Century Jewish Pacifists
Covering a period from 1914 to the 1980s, this book offers a social and biographical history of pacifist stances within Judaism. The holy inheritance of the Kabbala, Hasidism and sacred texts are considered alongside secular dilemmas to do with the state and war. This book should meet a particular need in peace studies, social history and theology. It gives insight into an expression of conscience which needs to be heard and the lives of individuals who have sought to give it voice.
