Models and Meanings in the History of Jewish Leadership
Edwin Mellen Press
Expanding on the foundational works of Max Weber and Daniel Elazar, Dr. Lewis analyzes leadership paradigms through the long course of Jewish history, from the biblical and rabbinic eras, to the Middle Ages and the modern and contemporary periods. Thoroughly researched and documented, this work is more than a theoretical text. The author, a seasoned Jewish communal executive, brings his own thoughtful evaluation to seminal questions of Jewish leadership.
