Salonica and Istanbul is a collection of papers by Rena Molho concerning Greek and Ottoman Jewry. Formerly, a major centre of Ottoman Jewish life, Salonica has largely forgotten its Jewish past due to its incorporation into the Greek state and then the Nazi occupation during the Second World War. Molho’s contribution, therefore, has been to rediscover Salonica’s Jewish past, whether it be in terms of the local press, socialist organisations, schooling, women or Zionism. Molho’s research comes from the Ottoman archives as well as preserved collections of Jewish writing and printing which have only recently become available. The topics Molho discusses range temporally from the nineteenth century until the mid-twentieth and have been grouped into four parts: a historical overview; social and institutional organisation; political roles. The final section is composed of three works which address the Judeo-Spanish language (Ladino) used by Salonica’s Jews.

The New Syriac Primer, 2nd Edition

Series: Gorgias Handbooks 9
ISBN: 978-1-59333-325-6
A truly useful introduction to the Syriac language is a rare find. This practical initiation to the study of this ancient language of the Christian church speaks with clarity and authority. A fruitful integration of scholarly introduction and practical application, this primer is more than a simple grammar or syntactic introduction to the language. Writing in a style designed for beginners, Kiraz avoids technical language and strives for a reader-friendly inductive approach. Readings from actual Syriac texts allow the student to experience the language first hand and the basics of the grammar of the language are ably explained. The book comes with downloadable material so that readers may listen to all reading sentences and text passages in the book.

All is in the Hands of Heaven

The Teachings of Rabbi Mordecai Joseph Leiner of Izbica (Revised edition)
Series: Judaism in Context 3
ISBN: 1-59333-337-4
Mordecai Joseph Leiner of Izbica was a unique thinker in the history of Hasidism with a highly personal vision of Judaism. His teachings, partially derived from the Przysucha-Kotsk school, adopted the concept of absolute divine providence as a cornerstone. He also reinterpreted the Lurianic concept of tiqqun, originally intended as a cosmological concept, to apply to the individual, creating a new path to spiritual self-perfection.

Jacob of Sarug’s Homily on Jephthah’s Daughter

Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug
Translation and Introduction by Susan Ashbrook Harvey & Ophir Münz-Manor
ISBN: 978-1-60724-071-6
This edition of Mar Jacob of Sarug's (d. 521) homily on Jephthah’s daughter invisages this single, virginal female as a prefiguration of Christ. Jacob also discusses the history of blood sacrifice and on the qualities that render Jephthah’s action priestly. The volume constitutes a fascicle of The Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain the original Syriac text of Jacob's surviving sermons, fully vocalized, alongside an annotated English translation.

The Demonstrations of Aphrahat, the Persian Sage

ISBN: 978-1-59333-768-1
Among the earliest known sources from the Persian Church, the 4th-century Demonstrations of Aphrahat reflect a form of Christianity much closer to its Jewish roots than contemporary Western forms. Their mix of ascetic instruction, polemic against Judaism, and theological reflection provides an invaluable glimpse into this otherwise poorly documented period.
