Mystic Trends in Judaism

This paperback reissue of a popular 1966 work probes the reasons for the Jews' ability to survive the many centuries of abuse and hate and unabashed attempts at annihilation. And the answers, the author finds, lie clearly in the spiritual values with which Judaism has been endowed. Unlike the rule of Rome that "might is right," Judaism insists that "what is just is right". And Arnold Posy proceeds to prove how this tenet of Judaism was kept alive by such Jewish spiritual giants as Shlomo Molko, Moses Chaim Luzzatto, Isaiah Horowitz, and Nachman Bratzlaver. A second consequential value emerged from the Jews' relationship to G-d as expressed in kabbala, messianism, hasidism, the cult of the tzadikim and, finally, as reflected in three classic Yiddish writers: I.L. Peretz, Mendele Mocher Seforim, and Sholom Aleichem. The twofold significance of the kabbala as a mystical conception of a cosmic world and as a nationalist concept of the Jewish people was chosen to bring universal redemption to all people on earth.
