Israeli playwright and director Hanoch Levin was one of the most original and innovative writers of his generation. Although Levin is familiar within the Israeli cultural context--and despite the steadily growing stream of literary and theatrical research of his oeuvre--there are few resources on his work available outside of Israel. The present volume, containing a selection of ten of his plays, is the first comprehensive effort to present this unique playwright and director to a broad readership. Levin's artistic credo was based on a constant urge to criticize Israeli society and its mainstream ideology while simultaneously confronting the basic human and existential issues of life and death. A whole generation of Israeli theater audiences has grown up on Levin's performances with all their paradoxical complexities. At this point, just a few years after his death from cancer in 1999 at the age of 56, it may not be possible to evaluate the full impact of his work. But this volume will contribute significantly to scholarship in this direction and to the appreciation of Levin's unique style.

This two-parts historical novel retells the life story of Berenike, daughter of Ptolemy II, from her golden youth as a princess in Alexandria to her tragic fate as queen of Syria. Third century BC Alexandria is the first truly cosmopolitan city. In the aftermath of Alexander’s conquests, the dominant Greek civilization tunes up with Egypt’s older culture. The innovative establishment of the cult of Serapis embodies the will of the Ptolemies to unite their kingdom. The Great Library and Museum attracts the world’s intelligentsia, from the far reaches of India to the confines of Celtic Europe. The Egyptian natives live in a slum in the eastern part of the city, in what was the ancient fishermen settlement of Rakhotis; on the western part of town, a vibrant Jewish community prospered and accounted for a third of the population of Alexandria. The story begins when King Ptolemy’s sister, Arsinoë, returns from exile to her native city of Alexandria. The ambitious and manipulative woman will stop at nothing to regain power and authority. She intrigues to eliminate the king’s wife and eventually will marry her own brother according to the Egyptian custom. Meanwhile, the central character, Yona Dharmaraksita, ambassador of the Empire of Maurya, is sent on a diplomatic mission to Alexandria. Upon his arrival, he will cross path with Arsinoë on the day Ptolemy’s youngest son is murdered in mysterious circumstances. Yona is caught in the middle of the intrigue. More murders are committed, and it is only on the last page of the book that the mystery will be unraveled. It is also a story of coming of age complicated by familial and political intrigues. In part two, we follow the destitute queen in her exile and discover the provincial life of Southern Egypt. Far removed from the Greek overlords, life goes on as it has for millennia, with its strange mysticism and stranger characters.

In a remote corner of the world, forgotten for nearly three thousand years, lived an enclave of Kurdish Jews so isolated that they still spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus. Mostly illiterate, they were self-made mystics and gifted storytellers and humble peddlers who dwelt in harmony with their Muslim and Christian neighbors in the mountains of northern Iraq. To these descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel, Yona Sabar was born. Yona's son Ariel grew up in Los Angeles, where Yona had become an esteemed professor, dedicating his career to preserving his people’s traditions. Ariel wanted nothing to do with his father’s strange immigrant heritage—until he had a son of his own. Ariel Sabar brings to life the ancient town of Zakho, discovering his family’s place in the sweeping saga of Middle-Eastern history. This powerful book is an improbable story of tolerance and hope set in what today is the very center of the world’s attention.

“Timely and brave. . . . Leegant is a masterful weaver.”—Miami Herald Yona Stern has traveled from New York to Israel to make amends with her estranged sister, a stoic ideologue and mother of five who has dedicated herself to the radical West Bank settlement cause. Yona’s personal life resembles nothing of her sister’s, but it isn’t politics that drove the two apart. Now a respected Jerusalem Talmud teacher, Mark Greenglass was once a drug dealer saved by an eleventh-hour turn to Orthodox Judaism. But for reasons he can’t understand, he’s lost his once fervent religious passion. Is he through with God? Is God through with him? Enter Aaron Blinder, a year-abroad dropout with a history of failure whose famous father endlessly—some say obsessively—mines the Holocaust for his best-selling, melodramatic novels. Desperate for approval, Aaron finds a home on the violent fringe of Israeli society, with unforeseen and devastating consequences. In a sweeping, beautifully written story, Joan Leegant, winner of the PEN New England Book Award and the Edward Lewis Wallant Award, and a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award, weaves together three lives caught in the grip of a volatile and demanding faith. Emotionally wrenching and unmistakably timely, Wherever You Go shines a light on one of the most disturbing elements in Israeli society: Jewish extremist groups and their threat to the modern, democratic state. This is a stunningly prescient novel.

The near-annihilation of Europe's Jews in the Second World War destroyed not only much of their history, but also knowledge of the contributions they made to the regions in which they lived. In The Jewish Oil Magnates of Galicia, Valerie Schatzker rescues the almost-forgotten story of the Jews who became the "wildcatters" and oil barons in one of the world's first petroleum industries. Combining a history of Galicia's petroleum industry with an annotated English translation of Julien Hirszhaut's Yiddish novel Di yiddishe naftmagnatn (The Jewish Oil Magnates), Schatzker traces the near-century-long boom and bust cycle that took place in the Austro-Hungarian province - from the perilous, back-breaking work of digging for oil by hand, to the introduction of the Canadian drill that increased production. Galician Jews worked in the industry from its beginning to its final days under German occupation. They were pioneers in exploration, refining, and marketing, and in the first part of the twentieth century were prominent among its technical, scientific, and managerial leaders. After the First World War, as borders shifted and minorities clashed, oil resources declined. During the Second World War, Nazi occupiers, using Jewish slave labourers, squeezed out the last barrels for their war effort. Schatzker’s study and Hirszhaut’s novel illuminate and inform each other: her monograph provides the historical context for the novel and his novel provides colour and detail, personalizing the history. Together, they offer a valuable glimpse into Jewish life in a vanished era.

The memories of David Shachar are a journey through the tunnel of time: from wanderings in Poland to the life of a refugee in World War II, and on to a soldier's life fighting the Nazis. After the war, while studying radio electronics in Paris, David cut his studies short and came to Israel to fight in the War of Independence. A few years later, David and his wife, Chaya, answered Ben-Gurion s call to settle the country "from the city to the frontier," and they moved to the development town of Kiryat Shmona. He worked tirelessly to advance the developing city, using his qualifications and abilities to build up technology in the border area. Years later, David Shachar served as a senior representative of the Israel Aircraft Industries with the Ministry of Defense and did much to develop and advance Israel s defense industry. David never lost sight of his memories of World War II and devoted himself to memorializing the bravery of the 30,000 Jewish soldiers who fell in the Polish army. On his initiative, the outstanding monument in their memory was established at the military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. In the words of Ephraim Kaye of Yad Vashem, David s story of rebirth is one of unprecedented creativity, courage and self-sacrifice that is the essence of Israel today. This inspiring autobiography is a must-read. "Through tragedy and war and a desire for peace, the life story of David Shachar serves as a model for our times."
