Contents

Leo Baeck (1873–1956) can be considered to be one of the most important proponents of German Jewry. Over the course of his life, he strove constantly to combine tradition and modernity within Judaism. Baeck educated young rabbis at Berlin’s “Hochschule für die Wissenschaft des Judentums” (College for the Science of Judaism) and sought dialogue between Christianity, Islam, and other religions.
Indebted to Baeck’s legacy the Abraham Geiger College dedicated its annual study conference in 2006 to this brilliant Jewish thinker – to mark the fiftieth anniversary of his death on November 2, 1956. This volume celebrates the wide spectrum of Leo Baeck’s heritage.
