Inspired by the enormous hunger for books on Jewish subjects written in a lively, intelligent, and popular manner, Jewish Encounters brings together writers of the first rank with people and ideas and events from the Jewish past.
The series, under the general editorship of Jonathan Rosen, is a collaboration between Nextbook, devoted to the promotion of Jewish literature, culture, and ideas, and Schocken, with its storied backlist of Jewish classics.
Idiosyncratic and ambitious, these books will explore ideas and themes that have been integral to Jewish life and culture through the ages, and that in many cases lie at the heart of not only American society but Western civilization itself.
