The Legacy of German Jewry

Hermann Levin Goldschmidt

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the scientific perspective and legacy of German Jewry. Despite the banning of Jewish academics, the Wissenschaft des Judentums continued its work alongside Jewish scholars who pursued extra-Jewish ends to promote an awareness of Jewish existence, its active research work and contribution to intellectual history as a whole. The penultimate step in the process of returning Jewish self-awareness was the establishment of Judaism as a field of academic study.

Keywords:   German Jewry, Wissenschaft des Judentums, Jewish academics, science, Judaism
