    Haskalah and beyond — First published in Subjects Judaism, Jews, Modern Hebrew literature, Intellectual life, History and criticism, Haskalah, Haskala, History. Despite all its limitations, the function of the Haskalah in the history of the Jewish people was determined by its progressive aim, namely, to battle against medievalism in the social and cultural life of the Jews. This was the source of its creativity. In the second part of the book, a description of the Hasidic system and Haskalah.

    Jewish History / Maskilim, Miracles and Modernization nontraditional books that dealt with “modern” issues – were found in his satchel. But the Orthodox establishment’s harassment of the maskilim is only one aspect of the story, and a particularly well-documented one, that Feiner, a professor of Jewish history at Bar-Ilan University. The Haskalah Movement in Russia, written in , remains a seminal work on the culture and plight of Russian Jews prior to the Revolution. That the rational thinkers covered within these pages were instrumental in the establishment of Hebrew and Yiddish literature and publishing, as well as an influence on the creation of both Reform Judaism and Zionism, makes this work of especial importance.

    The Haskalah thus came into existence right on the heels of Romanticism, followed the same basic road map as Romanticism, and ultimately petered out within years of Romanticism’s demise. Put simply, “[t]he history of Romanticism overlaps in time and space with the history of the Haskalah.” Litvak is hardly the first to notice this pattern. The Age of Haskalah is a seminal study of the beginnings of the Haskalah (Hebrew Enlightenment) in Germany in the last quarter of the 18th century.

Shmuel Feiner's innovative book recreates the historical consciousness that fired the Haskalah-the Jewish Enlightenment movement. The proponents of this movement advocated that Jews should capture the spirit of the future and take their place in wider society, but as Jews-without denying their collective identity and without denying their past.

Haskala, also spelled Haskalah (from Hebrew sekhel, “reason,” or “intellect”), also called Jewish Enlightenment, a late 18th- and 19th-century intellectual movement among the Jews of central and eastern Europe that attempted to acquaint Jews with the European and Hebrew languages and with secular education and culture as supplements to traditional Talmudic studies.

The Haskalah was inspired by the European Enlightenment but had a Jewish character. Literally, Haskalah comes from the Haskalah And History book word sekhel, meaning "reason" or intellect" and the movement was based on rationality.

An associate of Mendelssohn, Naftali Herz Wesseley (­), published his Divrei Shalom Ve’emet (Words of Peace and Truth), often described as the manifesto of the Haskalah, in which he made a typical Haskalah distinction between “the law of man” and the “law of God”; the former denoted Western patterns of life and secular learning, the latter, the traditional Jew­ish wayof religious life and : Rabbi Louis Jacobs.

Haskalah during his reign was like the Leviathan in the Talmudic legend which resembled an island, so that wayfarers approached it to moor under its lee and find shelter in its shade, but as soon as they began to walk and cook on it, it would turn and submerge them in the stormy and bottomless s: 2.
