Bernard Revel: Builder of American Jewish Orthodoxy [Hardcover]
In 1906, a gifted young Talmudic scholar named Bernard Revel came to the United States in the wave of mass immigration from Eastern Europe. Rabbi Dr. Bernard Revel was determined to create a school of Talmudic study that would also provide an American college education – to produce American Orthodox rabbis who could mold and sustain a viable authentic Judaism in the New World. This is the story of the man and his vision, and his achievement. Bernard Revel steered the course and development of Yeshiva College, the first college of liberal arts and sciences under Jewish auspices, from its beginnings as a modest yeshiva in a synagogue building on New York’s Lower East Side to its imposing quarters on the heights of Upper Manhattan.
Utilizing a wealth of source material uncovered in the course of his work for his doctoral thesis, Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet-Rothkoff has written a unique, detailed study of one of the most important figures in the rise and growth of modern American Orthodoxy.
