Reflections on Jewish Studies, Twenty Years Later

By Howard Tzvi Adelman

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2008

The author discusses the place of critical questioning in the academic field of Judaic studies, especially as pertain to the study of Israel and Zionism. The author strongly advocates the inclusion of nuance and critical examination, in keeping with broader academic traditions, in Jewish studies, even though he notes that many Jewish leaders (especially in America) insist that Jewish studies ought not to engage in criticism of Israel.
