The Legacy of German Jewry

This chapter discusses the historical background of the Jewish people's fight for the emancipation of the Jews as Jews. Jewish religiosity was the first realm of Jewish culture to achieve wide-ranging emancipation and recognition, and as a result, Judaism as a religion soon ran the risk of becoming just like any other set of religious beliefs. In the process of mounting its defense against this prospect, Judaism's religious perspective was able to make important advances and rediscovered its deepest and most authentic roots.

Keywords:   Jews, emancipation, Jewish religiosity, Judaism, Jewish culture
