Critic Reviews

"Mr. Yerushalmi's previous writings, on the Spanish and Portuguese Jews . . . established him as one of the Jewish community's most important historians. His latest book should establish him as one of its most important critics. Zakhor is historical thinking of a very high order - mature speculation based on massive scholarship." ( New York Times Book Review)
"Zakhor may well be a permanent contribution to Jewish speculation upon the dilemmas of Jewishness, and so it may join the canon of Jewish wisdom literature." ( New York Review of Books)
