Sample text

His books delineated the problems of the Jew in the Diaspora from the cultural and social aspects as well as the problem of his link to Jewish history and to Israel as a central issue (Le Juif imaginaire, 1980; The Imaginary Jew, 1994). He has dealt with antisemitism, the revisionist historians who have distorted the history of World War II (L’avenir d’une negation; 1982; The Future of a Negation: Reflections on the Question of Genocide, 1998 ), and incitement against the State of Israel (La réprobation d’Israël; 1983), using a system close to that of the “New Philosophers” of France.

He also edited Commentary of David Kimhi on Isaiah (1926, repr. 1969) and wrote Akiba – Scholar, Saint, Martyr (1936, 1962); Ha-Perushim ve-Anshei Keneset haGedolah (“Pharisees and the Great Synagogue,” 1950), which carried on in depth the investigation of his Pharisees; and New Light from the Prophets (1969), in which he traced certain Pharisaic emphases and sayings in the early Midrashim to the time of the prophets. He was drawn to the early classical treatises, which gave him insight into some of the earliest halakhic trends in Jewish Palestine.

Others turned to industry and forestry, but the majority continued in the textile and clothing business. With a few isolated exceptions the Jews did not take part in internal party politics or join any political movement. The author and Mizrachi leader Simon *Federbusch officiated as chief rabbi of Finland from 1930 to 1940. During the Finnish-Russian War of 1939–40, Jews fought alongside the Finns.
