The Genius
Elijah of Vilna and the Making of Modern Judaism


Sami Rohr Prize

This book offers a new narrative of modern Jewish history based on the life and legacy of the most influential modern rabbinic figure, the eighteenth-century rabbi Elijah ben Solomon, known as the Vilna Gaon.


Babel in Zion
Jews, Nationalism, and Language Diversity in Palestine, 1920-1948


Shapiro Prize

This absorbing study of language politics and language encounters in the Jewish community of Palestine after World War I is a fascinating tale of shifting power relationships, both locally and globally, as the Zionist community, faced with the limitations of its hegemony in an interconnected world, was compelled to modify the dictates of Hebrew exclusivity.
