Reclaiming Jewish History


edited by Bonnie Cousens

Colloquium ’97 brought together scholars and experts in Jewish history from every period of the Jewish experience to explore a crucial question — what is the real story of the Jewish people and their experience? Can we connect with our ancestors as they really were, rather than as we imagined them to be? Through stimulating surveys of their field and serious, even heated, discussions of the implications of their ideas, the panel and participants in Colloquium ’97 discovered much about the truth and legends of Jewish history.
