“Marx and the Kabbalah”

Eliyahu Stern
Professor of Modern Jewish Intellectual and Cultural History, Judaic Studies, Religious Studies and History

Professor Eliyahu Stern uses previously unexamined archival and published sources addressing Jewish themes in Marx’s writings to recover an early religious and nationalist reception of Marx in the Russian empire.
