Gershom Scholem

Gershom Scholem (1897-1982) Born to an assimilated Jewish family in Berlin, Gershon Scholem joined the Zionist movement as a student. He proceeded to devote himself to a thorough understanding of Jewish history, religion and culture, acquiring a knowledge of Hebrew and Jewish sources.

Gershom G. Scholem

Scholem joined the staff of the Hebrew University in 1923, as a librarian (1923-1927), becoming a lecturer (from 1925), and a professor of Jewish mysticism and Kabbalah (1933-1965). He wrote a number of texts on Kabbalah and mysticism: his studies, essays and speeches have had a major impact on the knowledge of Jewish mysticism by non-Jews.

His scholarship is marked by painstaking analysis, deep philosophical insight and profound historical understanding. He was awarded the Israel Prize in 1958. In 1962 he was elected vice-President, and in 1968, President of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
