Item Description:

The secular haskala aimed to make Jews compatible with the modern world, but to religious Jews, its methods were cultural suicide. Though many religious Jews simply ignored the haskala, others felt a need to respond. Rabbi Wein chronicles the accomplishments of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, Rabbi Ezriel Hildesheimer and their "religious haskala," showing how the view of “Torah im derech eretz,” in spite of the opposition it faced, endures in Jewish world today.
