Two exceptional publications from the Yeshiva University Press in New York are top picks for collections strong in Judaic studies; particularly at the college level. Suzanne Last Stone edits RABBINIC AND LAY COMMUNAL AUTHORITY (0881259535, $25.00), a survey which presents essays covering the modern tensions shaping relations between the rabbinate and the lay community. The historical, political and Jewish legal perspectives which address Jewish community governance are revealed with plenty of technical references and cross-references perfect for a serious Judaic studies collection. Lawrence Schiffman and Joel Wolowelsky's WAR AND PEACE IN THE JEWISH TRADITION (0881259454, $35.00) covers the 16th annual Orthodox Forum in 2004 which addressed issues of war, peace and Jewish traditions. Here are scholarly discourses that survey perspectives on rabbinic tradition and perspectives on war and social conditions. Both are top picks any serious scholarly college-level Jewish collection needs.
