About the Author

Malka Simkovich is a visiting assistant professor of Jewish studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.


This thoughtful and well-crafted book is a must-read for anyone seeking a roadmap through the much-vexed questions surrounding Biblical and late Second Temple conceptions of Jewish universalism. Simkovich first defines universalism and then systematically works through several distinct but often intertwined manifestations of it. With clarity and erudition, the author illuminates the complexity of key Biblical and post-Biblical texts and demonstrates that the same text could have both universalistic and particularistic reflexes. -- Joel S. Kaminsky, Morningstar Family Professor of Jewish Studies, Smith College
This is a fascinating study, in which the author connects the dots between late Biblical and Prophetic and Jewish-Hellenistic writings in order to draw a picture of an emerging Jewish universalism in antiquity. -- Gerbern S. Oegema, McGill University
