Yerushalmi argues that collective memory serves a role that history cannot replace. He ass A colorfully written, subtle, and compelling examination of the tension between collective memory and modern history in the Jewish context/5. Yerushalmi, who is the Baron Professor of Jewish History, Culture and Society at Columbia University, focuses his enquiry on Freud's troubling final book, Moses and Monotheism, a book in which, some argue, Freud repudiates his Jewishness once and for all.

It is Yerushalmi's contention that, on the contrary, the Moses volume marks a return. Judaism is the world’s oldest monotheistic religion, dating back nearly 4, years.

Followers of Judaism believe in one God who revealed himself through ancient prophets. History is. Zakhor: Jewish History and Jewish Memory is a non-fiction book first published in by the historian Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi — a professor of Jewish history at Columbia University.

It consists of four lectures that Yerushalmi gave as part of the series of "Stroum Lectures in Jewish Studies", now known as the Samuel and Althea Stroum Lectures in Jewish Studies, at the University of Washington Author: Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi. Yerushalmi uses Freud's book as a springboard for exploring Freud's Jewish background and attitudes, particularly his Jewishness growing up and his public and private personae vis a vis his Jewish identity.

According to the late historian Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi, modern Jewish historiography rejects “premises that were basic to all Jewish conceptions of history in the past.” That is the central argument of Yerushalmi’s book, “Zakhor,” one of the most influential works on.
