RePosted Jewish Book Council
Review by Peter L. Rothholz
In his Introduction, Gottlieb provides a wealth of information about Mendelssohn, the time and place in which he lived, and his relationship with the Jewish as well as with the larger German community and some of its leaders. The German language of the eighteenth century can be challenging even to scholars, but Messrs. Bowman, Sacks and Arkush have given us translations which are both easy and enjoyable to read.
