Glinert, Lewis


Hebrew in Ashkenaz is a pioneering attempt to reverse an age-old academic prejudice against the legitimacy of Ashkenazi Hebrew. Glinert has gathered philosophers, historians, sociologists, and linguists to address such contentious issues as the role of Hebrew in Jewish life and the evolving shape of the language, over the period of 1000 years from the dawn of Ashkenazi life in Germany through contemporary Jewish society in Britain and Russia. This book finally abolishes the myth that Ashkenazi Hebrew was solely a language of religious study and prayer. Instead, it is shown to be a language with vibrancy and creativity all its own, from which today's Hebrew emerged with remarkably little effort.Glinert, Lewis is the author of 'Hebrew in Ashkenaz: A Language in Exile', published 1993 under ISBN 9780195062229 and ISBN 0195062221.
