about

From the tenth century to the thirteenth, the Jews of Spain belonged to a vibrant and relatively tolerant Arabic-speaking society, a sophisticated culture that had a marked effect on Jewish life, thought, artistic tastes, and literary expression. In this companion volume to Wine, Women, andDeath, we see how the surrounding Arabic culture influenced the new poetry that was being written for the synagogue service. The Hebrew poems here, accompanied by elegant English translations and explanatory essays are short lyrics of the highest literary quality.
Raymond P. Scheindlin is Professor of Medieval Hebrew Literature at the Jewish Theological Seminary. He has served as rabbi at the Kane Street synagogue, Brooklyn, and as provost of the Seminary.
