Emma Lazarus and Arnold Zweig stand for those many Jewish
authors who have found a permanent place in the respective literĀ­
atures o f their countries, yet did not neglect theirJewish heritage.
Scholars and religious leaders o f the more distant past, such as
Alexander Schor and Akiba Eger, remind us o f our long chain o f
tradition, whereas Leser Landshuth, Isaiah Sonne, and Simon
Gerson Bernstein helped recreate our past in more recent times.
Contemporary American rabbi-scholars Sidney Greenberg and
W. Guenther Plaut continue this never ending quest to illuminate
what has been handed down to us.
The poets, story tellers, scholars, and publishers, they all are
part and parcel o f our literary patrimony.
