Circles of Justice: Law, Culture, and the Jews of Metz in Eighteenth Century France (Exhibition)
Title: Circles of Justice: Law, Culture, and the Jews of Metz in Eighteenth Century France
Curator: Jay Berkovitz
Abstract: October 6 – December 31, 2013 Presented here to the public for the first time, the civil proceedings of the Metz Beit Din (Rabbinic Court) represent an exceptionally fertile resource for investigating vitally important topics in law and history. Equally significant, the publication of these nearly forgotten records offers an occasion to reexamine French Jewish life at the dawn of the Revolution, when the emancipation of the Jews first came to the attention of the public. This exhibition provides a glimpse of Jewish custom, culture and community on the brink of modernity, highlighting those areas that distinguished the Jews from their French neighbors and, no less important, the life they shared.

Protocols of Justice: The Pinkas of the Metz Rabbinic Court 1771-1789 (Book)
Title: Protocols of Justice: The Pinkas of the Metz Rabbinic Court 1771-1789
Author: Jay R. Berkovitz
Abstract: "The Pinkas of the Metz Beit Din" is the official register of civil cases that came before the Metz rabbinic court in the two decades prior to the French Revolution. Brimming with details of commercial transactions, inheritance disputes, women’s roles in economic life, and the interplay between French law and Jewish law, the Metz Pinkas offers remarkable evidence of the engagement of Jews with the surrounding society and culture. The two volumes of "Protocols of Justice" comprise the complete text of the Metz Pinkas Beit Din, which is fully annotated by the author, and a thorough analysis of its significance for history and law at the threshold of modernity.

Hidden from History: The Pinkas (Register) of the Metz Rabbinic Court, 1771-1789 (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Hidden from History: The Pinkas (Register) of the Metz Rabbinic Court, 1771-1789
Author: Jay Berkovitz
Abstract: Rabbinic court records provide rich sources for the study of early modern European Jewish life. The authority to adjudicate civil disputes ranked among the most highly valued of all privileges extended to Jews in the course of their history. This conference explores French and German rabbinic courts of the late 1700s, just before the French Revolution, and challenges our understanding of the beginnings of Jewish modernity. This program is part of a series of events about the early modern community of Metz, France in honor of the publication of Protocols of Justice: The Pinkas of the Metz Rabbinic Court, 1771-1789, introduction and editing by Jay Berkovitz (Brill Press, 2013). An accompanying exhibition, Circles of Justice, will open in October. The Pinkas (Register) of the Metz Rabbinic Court is a rare and little-known volume from the collections of the YIVO Institute Archives.

Sex, Yiddish and the Law: Jewish Life in Metz in the 18th Century (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Sex, Yiddish and the Law: Jewish Life in Metz in the 18th Century
Abstract: How will evidence of the cultural, legal and sexual lives of members of the Metz Jewish community challenge our assumptions about Jewish modernization, religion and life in pre-revolutionary France? Jay Berkovitz (author of the upcoming Protocols of Justice: The Pinkas of the Metz Rabbinic Court, 1771-1789) and Magda Teter (scholar of early modern religion and law) provide a rare look at three individual court cases recorded in the Pinkas (Register) of Metz.

French and Jewish: Defining a Modern Jewish Identity in the 19th Century (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: French and Jewish: Defining a Modern Jewish Identity in the 19th Century
Abstract: For the Jews of France, the attainment of citizenship in the early 19th century was far more than a political triumph. The transition from ghetto to emancipation heralded a major transformation in Jewish status, and nowhere was the metamorphosis more striking than in Metz. Looking at the Jews through the lens of French literature, politics and religion, three scholars will consider the far-reaching impact of Jewish emancipation on the meaning of being Jewish in the modern world. With Jay Berkovitz (University of Massachusetts), Lisa Leff (American University) and Maurice Samuels (Yale University).

The Persona of a Poseq: Law and Self-Fashioning in Seventeenth-Century Ashkenaz (Article)
Title: The Persona of a Poseq: Law and Self-Fashioning in Seventeenth-Century Ashkenaz
Author: Jay Berkovitz
Abstract: An essay is presented on the role of poseqim, or decisors of Jewish law, in early modern Jewish jurisprudence. Particular focus is given to German poseq Ya'ir Hayyim Bacharach. According to the author, Bacharach's decisions and rabbinical persona reflected both his own innovative intellect and broader trends towards creativity and independence in the interpretation of Jewish law. Other topics include consent, rabbinical responsa, and halachic argumentation.

Crisis and Authority in Early Modern Ashkenaz (Article)
Title: Crisis and Authority in Early Modern Ashkenaz
Author: Jay Berkovitz
Abstract: The social and intellectual foundations of medieval Judaism were shaken by a series of developments that included the invention of printing, advances in scientific knowledge, humanism, and the commercial revolution. In early modern Ashkenaz, the ensuing crisis centered on questions of ritual transmission and leadership. Minhagbücher composed in seventeenth-century Worms and Frankfurt urged the preservation and reinstatement of medieval customs relating to synagogue worship and rituals practiced in the home, while in some cases newer customs were also incorporated. However, the writings of Rabbi Ya’ir ?ayyim Bacharach were more far-reaching in response to the crisis of authority, as is evident in his forthright independence in matters of ritual and law. Customs could be considered authentic, in his view, provided they were textually based, were proven to be historically reliable, and enjoyed popular consent. His decision to consult kabbalistic sources—a departure from the resistance Kabbalah had encountered in early modern Ashkenaz—rested in part on the theological appeal of mysticism. Reflecting contemporary political philosophy and jurisprudence, Bacharach’s unequivocal endorsement of lay communal authority hinged on its elected status and on the legitimacy of law founded on principles of equity and justice.

Warsaw. The Jewish Metropolis: Essays in Honor of the 75th Birthday of Professor Antony Polonsky (Book)
Title: Warsaw. The Jewish Metropolis: Essays in Honor of the 75th Birthday of Professor Antony Polonsky
Editor: Francois Guesnet
Editor: Glenn Dynner
Abstract: Warsaw was once home to the largest and most diverse Jewish community in the world. It was a center of rich varieties of Orthodox Judaism, Jewish Socialism, Diaspora Nationalism, Zionism, and Polonization. This volume is the first to reflect on the entire history of the Warsaw Jewish community, from its inception in the late 18th century to its emergence as a Jewish metropolis within a few generations, to its destruction during the German occupation and tentative re-emergence in the postwar period. The highly original contributions collected here investigate Warsaw Jewry’s religious and cultural life, press and publications, political life, and relations with the surrounding Polish society. This monumental volume is dedicated to Professor Antony Polonsky, chief historian of the new Warsaw Museum for the History of Polish Jews, on the occasion of his 75th birthday.

Revisiting Baron’s ‘Lachrymose Conception’: The Meanings of Violence in Jewish History (Article)
Title: Revisiting Baron’s ‘Lachrymose Conception’: The Meanings of Violence in Jewish History
Author: Adam Teller
Abstract: In a paper entitled, “Newer Emphases in Jewish History,” published in 1963, Salo Baron wrote: “All my life I have been struggling against the hitherto dominant “lachrymose conception of Jewish history” … because I have felt that an overemphasis on Jewish sufferings distorted the total picture of the Jewish historic evolution….” Indeed, if one was to choose a single idea that encapsulated the legacy of Baron, perhaps the pre-eminent Jewish historian of the twentieth century, it would probably be this: Jewish history is not to be seen simply as a series of persecutions, which determined its nature and its course, but rather as a process of ongoing engagement between the Jews and their surroundings.

A Portrait in Ambivalence: The Case of Natan Hanover and His Chronicle, Yeven metsulah (Book Section)
Title: A Portrait in Ambivalence: The Case of Natan Hanover and His Chronicle, Yeven metsulah
Author: Adam Teller
Editor: Amelia M. Glaser
Abstract: In the middle of the seventeenth century, Bohdan Khmelnytsky was the legendary Cossack general who organized a rebellion that liberated the Eastern Ukraine from Polish rule. Consequently, he has been memorialized in the Ukraine as a God-given nation builder, cut in the model of George Washington. But in this campaign, the massacre of thousands of Jews perceived as Polish intermediaries was the collateral damage, and in order to secure the tentative independence, Khmelnytsky signed a treaty with Moscow, ultimately ceding the territory to the Russian tsar. So, was he a liberator or a villain? This volume examines drastically different narratives, from Ukrainian, Jewish, Russian, and Polish literature, that have sought to animate, deify, and vilify the seventeenth-century Cossack. Khmelnytsky's legacy, either as nation builder or as antagonist, has inhibited inter-ethnic and political rapprochement at key moments throughout history and, as we see in recent conflicts, continues to affect Ukrainian, Jewish, Polish, and Russian national identity.
