Modern Jews tend to relate to the past through history, which relies on empirical demonstration and rational thought, rather than through memory, which relies on the non-rational architectures of mythology. By now history has surpassed memoryMoreModern Jews tend to relate to the past through history, which relies on empirical demonstration and rational thought, rather than through memory, which relies on the non-rational architectures of mythology.

By now history has surpassed memory as a means of relating to the past--a development that falls short in building identity and creates disconnection between Jews and their collective history. Kurtzer seeks to mend this breach. Drawing on key classical texts, he shows that history and memory are not exclusive and that the perceived dissonance between them can be healed by a selective reclamation of the past and a translation of that past into purposefulness.
