Second Slayings

The Binding of Isaac and the Formation of Jewish Memory
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4026-4
In Second Slayings: The Binding of Isaac and the Formation of Jewish Memory, David N. Gottlieb explores the decisive - and, until now, under-appreciated - influence exerted on Jewish memory by the Akedah, the Binding of Isaac narrative in the Book of Genesis. Through the lenses of hermeneutics, literary and social theory, and history, Gottlieb reveals the ways in the Akedah narrative models the act of interpretation as a means of recovery from and commemoration of crisis - a strategy that has penetrated every aspect and era of Jewish life.
