Thank you for your interest in Nextbook Press’s Jewish Encounters book series.
It is our pleasure to offer a free copy of Nextbook Press’s new book Yehuda Halevi by Hillel Halkin to you as a respected educator in the Jewish community. This is a book we are very proud of, and one that lends itself wonderfully to a class or group discussion. Yehuda Halevi tells the story of the most famous Spanish Jew of the Golden Age who, 1,000 years ago, turned his back on fame and family and sailed to Palestine, a decision that still reverberates inside Jewish cultural and political life today. Halkin’s Halevi is in some ways the first Zionist, in others the last romantic. His book is sure to stir discussion and debate.
Our website contains additional information on the book, including a reader’s guide and a video interview with author Hillel Halkin. You can also read one of Halevi’s poems, translated by Hillel Halkin, here.
