This chapter briefly reviews a volume of essays, entitled Jewish History and Jewish Memory: Essays in Honor of Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi. It provides thumbnail descriptions of some of the articles that shed light on the history of central and east European Jewry from the eleventh to the twentieth centuries. This history is briefly explored through four sections. Along with several other essays that deal with central and east European Jewish themes, the volume contains articles on Sephardi Jewry, Jewish philosophy, and mysticism. It begins and ends with appreciations of Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi, whose ‘catholicity of knowledge’ it multifariously and impressively echoes.

Keywords:   Jewish history, Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi, central European Jewry, east European Jewry, Jewish themes, Sephardi Jewry, Jewish philosophy, mysticism, book review, Jewish memory
