Product Description


Libraries boasting a strong Judaica collection should add this intellectual delight. Library Journal
The translation into English is fluid and lively, and it will provide easy access to a rather difficult poet. Those who read Halevi in the original Hebrew may not be offered such a joyful opportunity. The commentaries are concise and to the point, and they provide sources and historical information that add substance to the text. To read Halevi through Rosenzweig s lenses is a rare double treat for the contemporary Jewish intellectual in search of meaningful materials on God, Zion, Soul, etc. Esther Fuchs, author of Israeli Mythogynies: Women in Contemporary Hebrew Fiction"

About the Author

Richard A. Cohen, Isaac Swift Distinguished Professor of Judaic Studies, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, is editor of Face to Face with Levinas, also published by SUNY Press, author of Elevations: The Height of the Good in Rosenzweig and Levinas and translator of four books by Emmanuel Levinas: Ethics and Infinity, Time and the Other, Discovering Existence with Husserl, and New Talmudic Readings.

HASH(0x8c63393c) out of 5 stars R. Yahuda Halavi pomes brought me to tears 13 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Rabbi's words left me in tears. From his sole jerling prayes of peantice to his longing for Jresulm. It dosnt read like a 12 centery work eather- for the most part it's comptly undsatadable.
The only draw back is that seavel of his reluouse pomes are a bit esotric- as would be exaped by a 12 centery Spaish Rabbi, and as far as I can tell this coltaion is a enligh tranlation of a Greaman coppay from the Orailal Hebrew. (I think the oranail was in hebrew). Some of the vearse - line ogantion seems a bit odd;and some pomes are better then others.
But even with this factored in it's a encadable coations from one of Jewdism most skilled poets/rabbi/phlospers. Every bit as relvent now as they were 800 years ago. Very few books out there can tuch your sole like R. Halevi's poetery.Secntly very few are as humaman.
One finle note however- becaful looking for the or any other book by him.Both Yahudau and Halevi are very coman names amongew the Jewish commity- and there's no standerized speeling. (Not in Enlisgh anyway.) The Librayain only found this book after much seacrching and cross reffranceing. To make matters worce one of the founding members of the fraild of Modern Anthopgy caryies the same name.
In addtion some of the publishers footnotes were quite helpful.

HASH(0x8c46b888) out of 5 stars Translations of a great poet 29 Oct. 2006
By Shalom Freedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
These translations into the English from the German translation of Franz Rosenzweig preserve the fundamental meaning of the poems. Halevi is the greatest figure of medieval Jewish poetry, and one of its greatest thinkers. His poems of longing for Zion(Tsion) are a central part of the Jewish liturgy especially on the day of mourning for the Temple, Tisha B'Av. He is a master of both personal poetry and communal poetry. He is above all a great religious poet who stirs the heart and mind in the deepest way.
