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.
