Arashijind Only on the inside title page do we discover the names of the editors and translators. It Is Todah in the Heavens. It is by any measure an astonishing accomplishment of historical and theological scholarship. Ishmael and Rabbi Akiva had fundamentally different approaches I read this book a while ago in the original Hebrew, which, if you can, is the way to go, since Heschel is a master of prose and writes in a beautiful Hebrew. Heschel does a great job explaining the basics an moving through the more difficult passages in a way that makes sense still.

Shelves: judaism I read this book a while ago in the original Hebrew, which, if you can, is the way to go, since Heschel is a master of prose and writes in a beautiful Hebrew. The prettiness of the writing makes up somewhat for the overall lack of organization, which makes the book a bit more conversational than purely rigorous.

There is one main thesis that Heschel is trying to prove in this book. That is that the schools of Rabbi Yishmael English: Ishmael and Rabbi Akiva had fundamentally different approaches I read this book a while ago in the original Hebrew, which, if you can, is the way to go, since Heschel is a master of prose and writes in a beautiful Hebrew.

That is that the schools of Rabbi Yishmael English: Ishmael and Rabbi Akiva had fundamentally different approaches to Jewish thought and theology, which is seen throughout the Mishna and other literature of that time period in the aggadic non-legal material. Yishmael was the "rationalist", a champion of straightforward and, well, rational thinking; Akiva was the mystic who embraced the ineffable and championed the supernatural.

Heschel surveys numerous individual topics which at some point came to the attention of Rabbi Akiva and Rabbi Yishmael or their respective colleagues and students, and shows how their fundamental approaches colored their approach to that issue. Only after taking some time to calm down and stand back can one evaluate the book in its original, three volumes in a more leveled manner. There is no question that Heschel is correct There are differences between Akiva and Yishmael and their "schools".

But Heschel takes it a bit too far. Many of his inferences are stretches of the imagination, and many of the quotes and Talmudic opinions are not necessarily attributable to the "school" that he wishes to attribute them to. That said, though, this book is extremely valuable, and brings life to the thought of two of the primary Jewish scholars of that period. Heschel clearly saw himself as some ultimate combination of the "Ishmaelian" and "Akiban" schools, the rational scholar and thinker and also the champion of the mystical and the "emotional" side of Judaism.

This probably has some truth to it as well. Be what may, this is obviously what Heschel thought of as his magnum opus, and his scholarship is evaluated primarily by this book. I think Heschel is moving toward a synthesis of the two, and I hope the church is too. If you know a little about Torah and Talmud, this will make you into a scholar.

Heavenly Torah: As Refracted through the Generations

Please note there is a week delivery period for this title. Yet his most ambitious scholarly achievement, his three-volume study of Rabbinic Judaism, is only now appearing in English. Furthermore, this disagreement constitutes a basic and necessary ongoing polarity within Judaism between immanence and transcendence, mysticism and rationalism, neo-Platonism and Aristotelianism. Heschel then goes on to show how these two fundamental theologies of revelation may be used to interpret a great number of topics central to Judaism. Not simply for large religious collections, but for any with active borrowers. A tour de force of gigantic proportions; recommended for all libraries.
