Third-Party Peacemakers in Judaism presents thirty-six case studies featuring rabbis and Jewish lay leaders who served as third-party peacemakers as described in Jewish classical, medieval, and early-modern rabbinic literature, many of which are critically analyzed here for the first time. Each case is explored through three layers of analysis: textual, conflict resolution theory, and implications for practice today. For more information about this book, click here
