In this finely crafted critical biography, Amir Engel provides a corrective to much of the vast literature on the enigmatic, but highly influential, twentieth century figure Gershom Scholem. Engel contends that Scholem s major achievement lies not in his scholarly discoveries but in his creation. Rather than finding the truth of the Kabbalah, he molded the vast literature of Jewish mystical lore into narratives, indeed stories, which entail new truths. Positioning Scholem s narratives in the context in which they were originally told, Engel discusses two interrelated stories: the story of Scholem s life and the story he told in his historiography. Gershom Scholem: An Intellectual Biography describes Scholem s formative years starting with his early adolescence before the First World War and ending when he reached recognition as an established Scholar in the 1950 s. It discusses Scholem s early activism in the Zionist youth movements in Berlin, his activism against World War One, his insistent search for father figures, and his ultimate failures. It continues with a discussion of the crisis Scholem underwent after immigrating to Palestine, his activism and the events that led him to rethink his politics. Finally, it describes Scholem s retreat from politics: his realization that his vision of Zionism was undone by powers much greater than his own. Simultaneously, this book offers a contextualized study of Scholem s major historiographical works. For Scholem s study of the mystical lore cannot be separated from his political activism, his demands to renew a dying nation, and the events he experienced in his life. Among other aspects of his historiography, the book discusses Scholem s interpretation of the Kabbalistic myth of exile, the Messianic misadventure of Sabbatai Zevi, and the aftermath of the Sabbatian debacle. Beyond offering a novel perspective on Scholem, this book opens a unique window onto some of the fundamental questions and problems of the first half of the 20th century in central Europe and in Israel/ Palestine."

Through a lifetime of passionate scholarship, Gershom Scholem (1897-1982) uncovered the "domains of tradition hidden under the debris of centuries" and made the history of Jewish mysticism and messianism comprehensible and relevant to current Jewish thought. In this paperback edition of his definitive book on Scholem's work, David Biale has shortened and rearranged his study for the benefit of the general reader and the student. A new introduction and new passages in the main text highlight the pluralistic character of Jewish theology as seen by Scholem, the place of the Kabbalah in debates over Zionism versus assimilation, and the interpretation of Kafka as a Jewish writer.

The legendary correspondence between the critic Walter Benjamin and the historian Gershom Scholem bears indispensable witness to the inner lives of two remarkable and enigmatic personalities. Benjamin, acknowledged today as on of the leading literary and social critics of his day, was known during his lifetime by only a small circle of friends and intellectual confreres. Scholem recognized the genius of his friend and mentor during their student days in Berlin, and the two began to correspond after Scholemâe(tm)s emigration to Palestine. Their impassioned exchange draws the reader into the very heart of their complex relationship during the anguished years from 1932 until Benjaminâe(tm)s death in 1940.

German-born Gerhard (Gershom) Scholem (1897-1982), the preeminent scholar of Jewish mysticism, delved into the historical analysis of kabbalistic literature from late antiquity to the twentieth century. His writings traverse Jewish historiography, Zionism, the phenomenology of mystical religion, and the spiritual and political condition of contemporary Judaism and Jewish civilization. Scholem famously recounted rejecting his parents' assimilationist liberalism in favor of Zionism and immigrating to Palestine in 1923, where he became a central figure in the German Jewish immigrant community that dominated the nation's intellectual landscape in Mandatory Palestine. Despite Scholem's public renunciation of Germany for Israel, Zadoff explores how the life and work of Scholem reflect ambivalence toward Zionism and his German origins.

The essence of the correspondence between Arendt and Scholem can be said to lie in three things. Above all it provides an intimate account of how two great intellectuals try to come to terms with being both German and Jewish, and how to think about Germany before, during, and after the Holocaust. They also debate the issue of what it means to be Jewish in the post-Holocaust world whether in New York or in Jerusalem. Finally, the specter of Benjamin haunts the work and in a sense the letters are as much about Benjamin as the other two questions since his life and tragic death epitomize them both. Arendt and Scholem's letters on these weighty questions are lightened by more routine exchanges: on travel itineraries, lunch or dinner parties where important people were present, and so forth. These daily details are woven throughout the correspondence and provide vivid biographical information about Arendt and Scholem that is unavailable in any other source.
