Phyllis Goldstein

Anti-Semitism in America
Leonard Dinnerstein

Oxford University Press, 1994

Is antisemitism on the rise in America? Did the "hymietown" comment by Jesse Jackson and the Crown Heights riot signal a resurgence of antisemitism among blacks? The surprising answer to both questions, according to Leonard Dinnerstein, is no--Jews have never been more at home in America. But what we are seeing today, he writes, are the well-publicized results of a long tradition of prejudice, suspicion, and hatred against Jews--the direct ...


Anti-Semitism and Its Metaphysical Origins
David Patterson

Cambridge University Press, 2015

This book articulates a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of Jew hatred as a metaphysical aspect of the human soul. Proceeding from the Jewish thinking that the anti-Semites oppose, David Patterson argues that anti-Semitism arises from the most ancient of temptations, the temptation to be as God, and thus to flee from an absolute accountability to and for the other human being.

Bernard Starr, 2014

This provocative exposé reveals how Renaissance art took the Jew out of Jesus and calls for art historians, curators, and art critics to acknowledge this ethnic cleansing of Judaism in artworks.
