A comprehensive history of The Jewish Publication Society Jun 6, 2005
JPS The Americanization Of Jewish Culture 1888-1988 is a comprehensive history of The Jewish Publication Society and its mission to become America's foremost publisher of Jewish books in English. From the efforts JPS's founders, a group of genttel Philadelphia philanthropists, to the story of how a tragic love affair with a JPS author was the turning point for Henrietta Szold to become a founder of Hadassah and Youth Aliyah, to a close scrutiny of the deliberations and behind-the-scenes work that went into the JPS Bible translations of 1917 and 1985, which have been since deemed acceptable to all major branches of Judaism. Part reflection, part manifesto, part record and part testimony to an ongoing dream, JPS The Americanization Of Jewish Culture 1888-1988 is a welcome addition to Judaic studies and literature reference shelves.
