    Judaism is an ancient monotheistic religion, with the Torah as its foundational text (part of the larger text known as the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible), and supplemental oral tradition represented by later texts such as the Midrash and the Talmud.   A comparison between the different strategies adopted in the Trial of the Talmud, on the one hand, and the Disputation of Barcelona, on the other, reveals the distinct forms anti-Judaism could take in different European cities.

    The historical episode in which Jews were put on trial in Israel for aiding the Nazis – the subject of a new book by Holocaust scholar Itamar Levin, called “Kapo on Allenby” – took place in the s, between two other post-Holocaust events of great significance: the Nuremberg Trials, which took place in Germany in the late s, and the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem, Author: Ofer Aderet.   Judaism on Trial travels the razor’s edge of Jewish tradition and 21st century thinking on: evolution, attitudes to non-Jews, dialogue with other religions, biblical criticism, and much more. This is an open and intensive text based exploration of Judaism .
