Ninety-Two Poems and Hymns of Yehuda Halevi

Franz Rosenzweig, Ninety-Two Poems and Hymns of Yehuda Halevi, trans. Thomas Kovach, Eva Jospe and Gilya Gerda Schmidt, ed. Richard A. Cohen, State University of New York Press, 2000.  

From the Publisher:

“This is the first publication in English of Franz Rosenzweig’s 1927 translation of and commentaries on ninety-two poems and hymns of the greatest medieval “singer of Zion,” Yehuda Halevi (born circa 1080). Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929) is widely recognized as one of the greatest Jewish philosophers of the modern period and his Star of Redemption is considered one of the most important twentieth-century contributions to Jewish–and Christian–theology.

Rosenzweig’s original and brilliant commentaries open a window into the final developments of his own thought: his debates with Protestant theology, his reservations regarding modern science and culture, and his progressive appreciation for the wisdom of the Jewish tradition. They are a testament not only to the profound vision of Judaism embedded in the poetry of Yehuda Halevi, but to the ever vibrant and deepening sagacity of Franz Rosenzweig himself.”
