Yudit Greenberg, professor of religious studies, has published Dharma and Halacha: Comparative Studies in Hindu-Jewish Philosophy and Religion, which will be released August 15.
In recent decades there has been a rising interest among scholars of Hinduism and Judaism in engaging in the comparative studies of these ancient traditions. Greenberg’s book represents a significant contribution to this emerging field, offering an examination of a wide range of topics and a rich diversity of perspectives and methodologies within each tradition. It also underscores important affinities in textual practices, ritual purity, sacrifice, ethics, and theology.
Dr. Greenberg is the George D. and Harriet W. Cornell endowed chair of religion and founding director of the Jewish Studies Program at Rollins. Her most recent book is The Body in Religion: Crosscultural Perspectives (2017).
